About AHA Academies

Academies are now up and running. During registration, our freshman will be selecting from the following five Small Learning Academies. Career Academies are "schools-within-schools" organized around career themes. They integrate academic and vocational instruction, provide work-based learning opportunities for students and prepare students for postsecondary education and employment, with the personalized learning environment of a small community. Teachers and students integrate academic and occupation-related classes as a way to enhance real-world relevance and maintain high academic standards. Local employer partnerships provide program planning guidance, mentors and work internships. Career academies place an emphasis on building relationships between students and teachers as well as work-site supervisors and other employer representatives.

In selecting an academy, students will take courses that integrate academic and vocational instruction into the curriculum. Within each academy, students will be able to participate with other academy programs such as Engineering and Technology, Craft Services, and DECA. In addition, core academic courses (English, Math, Social Studies, Modern Languages, Science and PE) will integrate curriculum each academy area over the next three years of their education at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School.
