AmeriSchools Academy is a collection of four campuses specializing in individualized, tuition-free instruction of core curriculum. They opened their first school in Tucson in 1997, and have expanded to several different locations across Arizona. For AmeriSchools, it was crucial that their website adhere to the U.S. Department of Education requests to make the website ADA compliant. They also prioritized having a highly secure website to prevent security attacks and protect the end-user. Lastly, they wanted the ability to provide tools and information to proactively serve the students, parents, faculty, and staff. We were excited to deliver a product that met all of these expectations! CLICK HERE to see their new custom website!
Websites that are viewed by the general public must meet certain standards of accessibility. When AmeriSchools approached us about redoing their website, their main concern was their old site not being accommodating to those with disabilities. We knew the importance of creating a product that was ADA compliant, so we took measures in design and code in order to meet the needs of the site. We ensured the design would be consistent and organized. Other ways we were able to ensure ADA compliancy was through HTML formatting, font styles, unobtrusive animations, and color contrasting in the design.
Animations and Illustrations
For AmeriSchools, we designed a website that is engaging and easy to use for students, parents, and faculty. We created animations under the call-to-action, which can be seen through the hover over each campus. When users hover over the campus, a drop down menu of resources reveals itself. In addition, we also designed custom illustrations over the top hero section that move slightly.
