AMPA enjoys our own academic and performing arts faculty. Academic classes include rigorous Honors and AP courses. Often Academy students may be taking a class with a teacher in the Humanities magnet or in one of our other excellent SLC’s (Small Learning Communities).
Our student body includes students who are highly focused on their chosen performing arts and intend to apply to conservatories after high school, as well as students who plan to attend two-year colleges and four-year colleges and universities. There are many pathways and options available to students, to suit their passions and ambitions.
All students must complete their A-G requirements prior to graduation. Alexander Hamilton Senior High School staffs dedicated A-G counselors and academic counselors to ensure that students are on track. Many of our students pursue afterschool or summer expanded courses at Santa Monica College, West LA College and online WASC-accredited programs allowing flexibility to students who need additional options for scheduling.
