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.

It’s a middle-college high school... so expect a different experience in comparison to other schools. However, is that good or bad? Good, in the best way. There are 100 students in your grade, everyone knows everyone. You progress as a unit and grow as individuals. In addition, the faculty is there to assist you in your strife for academic and professional success. If you want to get ahead in college credits, attend this school! You won’t regret it.
Academy of the Canyons is an amazing school that really stands by their motto, "Your Future, Today". From my experience in this school, the staff, teachers, and supporters truly care about their students, investing their time to really connect with them and ensure that they are comfortable in their goals in life they want to achieve. The teachers are spectacular, they allow the students to explore new theories in school that go beyond the norms. There are many clubs including Debate Club, Anime Club, Bioengineers, and Performing Arts Club that cater to anyone's passions. Overall, Academy of the Canyons is an amazing school that impacts students throughout their whole lives through the education and school culture.
