The Academic Academy is a program designed for students as an alternative to the comprehensive high school. Students in grades 10 through 12 are served, as well as 9th grade students who have not yet completed the requisite coursework for admission to high school in Arlington Public Schools. This program is designed with small class settings, low teacher/student ratio, individualized teacher mentoring, and structured academics. Curriculum areas include English, math, social studies, and science. In addition to academics, students have the option of enrolling in one the many Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective classes offered at the Career Center. Students may attend the Academy for five periods and return to the comprehensive high school for an additional two classes, or students may choose to spend the entire academic day at the Career Center.
