Academy High School

A School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

  • Welcome to Academy High School!

    At Academy High School, students develop powerful problem-solving and critical thinking skills through coursework that exposes them to challenging courses including engineering, biomedical sciences, computer sciences, and environmental studies. Students work to master core subjects with an emphasis on science, technology, math, and engineering. Students are encouraged to research, learn and apply new material through hands-on projects, activities, and problem-based learning. We believe that these courses are essential in preparing students to pursue post-secondary education.
