One2One Parent Information Meetings
Through our One2One program, every 5th - 8th grade American Academy student who has met the registration and training requirements will be given a school-owned laptop for use throughout the school year. We recommend all parents of incoming 5th graders (and anyone else with questions) review this page over the summer. You can also email the IT Department
Additionally, please plan to attend one of our One2One parent information meetings at the beginning of the school year. The meetings are optional for everyone, but recommended for parents of incoming 5th graders who will be participating in One2One for the first time. Parents may attend meetings at either campus - choose one that's convenient for you! The dates and times are below so you can plan ahead. No need to RSVP -- just come when you can.

Parent Password for Student One2One Laptop
The American Academy IT Department does not allow students to install software on their One2One laptops. For this reason, students are not be able to install the printer drivers required for them to use printers outside of American Academy's network. However, parents CAN install those printer drivers with a special parent user account called "PARENT.” An email with the appropriate login information will be sent to all parent email addresses on file with the school the week of August 28, 2017. Please refer to this email for your PARENT account password and instructions. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please email the IT Department.
Parental Controls - Internet Monitoring
If you wish to setup parental controls or internet filtering for your student while on your home WiFi, the American Academy IT Department recommends a FREE online DNS filtering product called OpenDNS.
