Talya Young, Principal

  • Talya YoungWelcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

    I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Aspire Online Academy. I am proud to serve as the principal of AOA. Our school is founded on the belief that all students can achieve academic success when given a positive learning environment, a committed and focused educational team, an encouraging community, and a supportive family. Our strong partnership between home and school will help foster greater success for our children. As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your students receive the best support to learn and grow. We will continuously reflect and improve upon our instruction in order to stay relevant to ever-changing student needs.  

    I truly believe that the prerequisite for a successful educational journey and future is a solid foundation in relevant learning skills, both academically and socially. My vision is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the rapidly changing world around them. 

    Aspire Online Academy offers multiple innovative educational environments utilizing an interactive online experience and a physical location for in-person, hands-on learning that serves our diverse student population. Each promises students the opportunity to develop unique interests, uncover hidden talents, experience satisfaction in accomplishments, gain a sense of responsibility, and pursue education as a way of life through educational programs tailored to their own specific needs.

    As we embark upon this new year, it is imperative we continue building a strong structure of learning, collaboration, communication, and academic growth. We are embracing the change necessary for our students to have educational choices and diversity in learning. Our school allows our students and families to engage in the learning process more flexibly yet effectively. This unique learning opportunity will require each of us to think differently about the structure and function of schools.

    We are excited about the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. Every action and interaction we complete will support the mission of our school, promote our inclusive culture, and ensure positive educational experiences for each of our students. I encourage you to share your ideas, concerns, or questions as we transition into our daily learning routines and practices. I wish your family, and especially your students, great success this school year.

    Thank you for being a part of our AOA community!
