An in-depth exploration of history, psychology, philosophy, and the likes; the ability to understand the human experience outside of one’s own individual social and cultural context allows students to develop a conscience more suited to the multicultural world in which they live.
The foundational philosophy of the World Language courses is that language, discussion, reflection, and imagination lead to the development of skills which help students understand and interpret the human experience.
Over half of Academy students enroll in one (or more) honors level or AP courses.
Academic and Arts Electives
Academic and Arts Electives are offered to students of all arts departments. They provide a chance to study a different discipline or view a specific art through an academic lens. Students are encouraged to explore these disciplines outside of their chosen department.
Students at The Academy participate in a years-long program aimed at helping them best prepare for, and execute, the college research, application, audition, and selection process.
