The academies at Austin High School provide authentic learning experiences with integration of the required core content (math, science, ELA, and social studies). Learners will explore content through a curricular lens in each of the academies:global awareness in the Academy for Global Studies, philosophical and logical reasoning in the Academy for Classical Studies, and scientific exploration in the Academy for Science and Innovation. In the Academy of High Tech, learners will use technology to find answers to questions and develop unique outcomes.
