    Academy of American Studies

Welcome to Academy of American Studies Online!  Our web site is designed to help all members of our school community communicate in an efficient manner.  Parents and current students, please search using the drop menus above for current information and distributed handouts.  Prospective students can check out our admissions menu for information and tour schedules.

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.

  

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS AND PARENTS

Our Open Houses for Fall 2016 will be November 7th and November 10th.  You can also schedule a tour of the school.  

Call 718-361-8786 to arrange a visit.

Feel free to email the Principal, Mr. Bassell at wbassel@schools.nyc.gov.
