The AOC Difference
The Academy of the Canyons offers ninth through twelfth grade school students a unique educational experience that fosters academic and personal success in the high school and college environments. In order to ensure successful learning for every student, our staff is committed to effective classroom instruction, rigorous curricula, and quality relationships between staff, students, parents, and college partners.
A UNIQUE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Learning is different here at AOC. Beyond exceeding academic requirements while earning college units, Academy of the Canyons students learn to become effective communicators and collaborators, and conscientious members of society who respect cultural diversity and individual differences and who understand local, national, and global issues.
WHAT IS THE FOUR-YEAR PLAN?
At the Academy, we encourage our students to engage with their academic passions in order to properly define their ambitions and their postsecondary goals.
SPACES THAT INSPIRE
At AOC, our students are given a collaborative makerspace, a lounge area, and a computer lab to explore, study, and collaborate on projects.
Diversity & Inclusion
Embracing our differences
We are fortunate enough to have a student body representing a significant variety of backgrounds and beliefs who learn from and with one another. When they come to AOC, they bring their talent, curiosity, and intelligence. They also bring their perspective on the world—an understanding that is deeply tied to their culture, background, and experiences. The result is a diverse, open-minded community where dialogue and debate are not only encouraged—they're inevitable.
Your education goes beyond coursework. Student activities provide unique opportunities to expand your comfort zone, learn new things, and make friends. AOC has wide-ranging student organizations suited to all interests, and the community is always looking to expand its offerings.
Student organizations also help to broaden your social circle. You'll get to know classmates with different academic interests from your own, or who has a background that isn't necessarily familiar to you. At AOC, you'll always have opportunity to find common ground with your peers.
