Frequently Asked Questions

What does AESA stand for?

AESA is a loose acronym that stands for Academic Excellence for the Scholar, Athlete, and Artist.

The acronym is also used in API’s sister school, a physical ‘brick-and-mortar’ private college prep school located in Austin, TX. USA.

What Type of School is API?

AESA Prep International is a private online college prep school. API’s main goal is to deliver an elite academic education and to ensure API students attend top-level colleges and universities.

Unlike most online schools, API is SACS Accredited and NCAA Approved

Are you accredited?


API is SACS Accredited (the same accreditation earned by the University of Texas at Austin) which is awarded by AdvancED ; the premier educational accreditation organization in the world.

API is also NCAA Approved, meaning for any student-athlete seeking to play a NCAA sport at a college or university in the United States, he or she will be able to. Many online schools are NOT NCAA approved, meaning non-NCAA approved credits earned by students will not be accepted by the NCAA and those students ultimately will not be eligible to participate in NCAA sports.

What Grade Levels Does API Provide?

API currently serves students grades 9th – 12th (American grade-level system). API is currently developing content for grades 6th – 8th.
