AURA - Policy
“Language is so tightly woven into human experience that it is scarcely possible to imagine life without it” (Pinker, 1994, p. 17). Since language is central to learning, all teachers are, in practice, language teachers with responsibilities in facilitating communication (“Guidelines,” 2008, p. 1) The purpose of AURA’s language learning program aligns with that of the IBO: to develop life-long language learners who exemplify the learner profile, who are compassionate, internationally minded learners.
American University Research Academy (AURA) places a strong emphasis on academic integrity to ensure that students develop a strong sense of ethical research and writing practices throughout their education. Academic integrity is a fundamental value. It is a principle in education and a choice to act in a responsible way so others can trust us. It means conducting all aspects of your academic life in a responsible and ethical manner.
At American University Research Academy, we are committed to providing an inclusive and diverse educational environment that aligns with the principles of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. This policy outlines our admissions criteria and procedures to ensure fairness, transparency, and consistency in the enrollment process.
Assessment is a practice that drives instruction and involves teachers, students, and parents. Assessment measures student learning and informs stakeholders about an individual’s areas of strength and areas that are in development. Information from assessment is used to identify learning targets and plan curriculum.
At AURA, we are committed to providing an inclusive learning environment that respects and values the unique abilities, talents, and needs of all students. This policy outlines our commitment to inclusion and the provision of special educational support in alignment with the principles of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. provides the following information relating to your privacy when using websites in the Auracademy.ORG domain.
