Admissions: General Information

Academy of the Canyons Middle College High School (AOC) is a small public Hart District school located on the campus of College of the Canyons for mature students in grades 9-12 who take high school and college classes to meet their educational goals. Unique in the Santa Clarita Valley, Academy of the Canyons has served students for over twenty years by offering a personalized educational experience in an intimate and supportive setting.


AOC students take COC classes each semester along with their AOC classes starting in the 9th grade. This offers students an opportunity to EXPLORE by taking an array of college classes offered at COC. COC waives course enrollment fees (tuition) for students who are California residents.


Admission to AOC is available to any student living within the area served by the William S. Hart Union High School District. We admit students once a year for the fall semester through an application and selection process that begins in November of the previous school year. Interested students and parents must attend a MANDATORY information meeting about the school and the application process.
