Fall 2016 Happenings
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
If you missed our Fall 2016 Open Houses, you can still schedule a tour of the school by appointment only.
Call 718-361-8786 to arrange a visit.
Feel free to email the Principal, Mr. Bassell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enrollment is now open for the Spring 2018 Trip to Germany. Registration and more information can be found here at the www.eftours.com/1888048MC
