  • Living Environment Regents

    Students who are currently in Algebra, Sophomore English, Living Environment, and Earth Science who pass the class in June will automatically be granted a Regents waiver and will not have to take the Regents exam in June or in the future.  However, if you would like your child to opt in to taking the exam rather than having it waived, you may choose that in this survey.  If your child is taking the exam, it will be in person.  Parents/Guardians may opt to have their students take the exam(s) in June in person at the Academy rather than having it waived.

    In order for us to safely plan for students to take the Regents exam, we must know how many students plan to sit for the tests.  Please complete the following survey by May 14th, 2021: www.tinyurl.com/AASRegentsWaiver

GILDER LEHRMAN FLAGSHIP HIGH SCHOOL

The Academy was the first American history high school in the country  created in 1996 with the cooperation and partnership of the Queens High Schools Superintendency and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. We are recognized as the flagship high school of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American history and the institute has taken the model of the Academy and duplicated it all across the country.
