I transferred to Academy of the Canyons at the beginning of my junior year in high school, and it was one of the better decisions I ever made in high school. I have learned to push myself to extents I never knew I could reach and made so many new friends that made me feel proud of who I am and where I come from. I love the diversity found in the school and all the kind teachers that help the students through anything they ask. Another positive experience I gained from attending AOC is the opportunity to enroll in community college, since AOC is a Middle College High School. I have adapted to the college life extremely well and will be receiving my Associate's Degree in Psychology around the time I graduate high school! Overall, Academy of the Canyons has provided me with so many opportunities and lessons that I would not have learned elsewhere.
Review Academy of the Canyons
My overall experience at AOC has been a wonderful one. I have been there since Freshman Year and have grown to love the school. My favorite experiences have been during fun school events like school dances, school activities during school and provided by ASB, and overall learning and growing as an individual. This school is particularly unique because allows the students to experience the college life, as some would call it. These middle college high school students have the amazing opportunity to attend a local community college and earn actual college credit, rather than just AP credit. The students are actually immersed within the college and get the full college experience by being at a college campus with college students and college professors. I would definitely choose this school again because it has become a second home for me. I have met incredible people who I have become great friends with, and I have learned much from my teachers. Thank you, AOC!
Academy of the Canyons is a middle college high school, meaning that the students attending are dually enrolled in high school and college classes at the local community college, College of the Canyons. Depending on their major and what degrees they are aiming for, students can graduate with, sometimes multiple, associate degrees by the time they graduate high school. I'd like to think that AOC has its own little niche in the SCV and I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this tiny school. With an close, family-like vibe in each grade, I was able to make friends, learn great qualities like independence, and embrace myself .
