AIS opened in 2011 with 60 students in grades 1-8. It currently enrolls more than 300 students in grades Pre K-12. The school graduated its first class in 2016, the same year that a purpose built facility was completed and occupied.

AIS strives to provide a strong liberal arts curriculum in a structured environment that challenges students to cultivate an ordered life and to accept personal responsibility. AIS was founded with a dedication to teaching all of its students how to think, not what to think. AIS prepares students for a life of learning and growth so that over time informed ideas may enrich and improve their lives, the lives of their families and communities, and the changing world.
The Board recognizes the Director as its chief administrative officer, responsible for the day to day operations of the school. While the Board takes major responsibility for policy decisions, it seeks accurate information and recommendations about the needs of the school from the Director who also is responsible for implementing Board policies. The Director is considered the educational and administrative leader of the school and is expected to work closely with the staff and the Board to implement the founders' vision for the school.
Working with other administrators, the Director will be involved in coordinating curricular and extra-curricular development, overseeing staffing and staff development, furthering the development of an exciting new facility, and working to ensure the continued success of AIS students. The Director is considered the philosophical leader of the school and will be expected
to sustain and promote the founders' original mission and vision, in particular the ideal of serving all socio-economic groups equally.
The Board invites proven administrators to apply for this position if they have the following leadership qualities, skills and experiences:
