Wall decors have started going up to represent the four broad academy themes at Alexandria Area High School. The academies include Freshman Academy; Engineering, Manufacturing Technologies and Natural Resources; Health Sciences and Human Services; and Business, Communication and Entrepreneurship.

The academies, collectively known as The Academies of Alexandria, will help AAHS establish a modern education campus by organizing the school into smaller learning communities.

This innovative learning program is a type of small learning community (SLC), a growing concept. Across the nation, SLCs are viewed as an effective model to prepare all students for their future, whether it be college or directly entering the workforce after graduation.
