As part of the Austin ISD High School Redesign plan, Akins High School is divided into 7 different Academies. To help each student build a personal vision of greatness, Akins has created seven Academy-structured Smaller Learning Communities.
From 9th-12th-grade career-focused learning, Academies strive to offer rigorous and relevant curricula to promote student success. Each Academy offers a core foundation of courses and real-world learning experiences for every student. Each Academy is led by 3 leaders: the assistant principal, the counselor, and the academy coordinator. At the end of each major, students are able to participate in some type of capstone, internship, and/or practicum program.
