Ordo Amoris Classical Academy uses a university style model. Classes meet four days a week, Tuesday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. The upper school's class day is scheduled into four 90 minute classes. For students in 7-12 grades, classes may be taken a la carte. This model is both prudent and practical. Students spend rigorous and concentrated time in their classes, and teachers are given ample time to lead Socratic discussions and comprehensive lessons. In order to have the modified schedule, parents will register their student as a homeschooler with the Alabama Department of Education.
