Who We Are

Aspiring Heights Academy (AHA) is a Florida registered non-traditional, non-public school founded and directed by Jody Davids. AHA serves as an umbrella school (also known as a cover school) for parents who wish to pursue home-based education for their children. AHA was established in 2010.

What We Do

We help parents comply with Florida's school attendance laws while teaching their children at home. We serve as a Florida legal school of record and provide guidance, correspond with former and future schools and colleges, and permanently maintain academic records. We assist parents and students with FLVS Flex course options, dual enrollment opportunities, Bright Futures scholarships, and college admissions.

We serve students in grades K–12 from ages 5 through 19. (Students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy have until their 21st birthday to complete their coursework.)

Our mission is to provide a covering to Florida families so that parents can educate their children concordant with their lifestyles and beliefs and their children's educational goals. We strive to make homeschooling and meeting Florida's compulsory attendance requirements as stress free as possible by offering support, curriculum options, and assistance with dual enrollment, scholarships, and the college application process.

Our Vision
