  • About The Academy - San Francisco @ McAteer

    The Academy offers a rigorous and relevant curriculum to meet the needs of our diverse student body. All students complete their a-g requirements during their 4 years and graduate college-eligible. Thanks to a partnership with CCSF, many of our graduates also graduate already having earned transferable college credits.

    Every Academy student receives college counseling all four years supported through our two full-time academic counselor and full-time college counselors.

    The Academy’s small school setting allows our teachers to create an effective learning environment by working closely with students and their families in building a strong community. Within this community, teachers are able to give more individual attention to students and communicate regularly with parents. Our administrators, like our teachers, work to individualize experiences for stakeholders by welcoming parents to drop in to school whenever they like discuss the best way to serve families. As a small school, between our two administrators we know every student on campus and are very hands on with all student support issues that arise.

    The Academy-SF is co-located with Ruth Asawa School of the Arts at the former McAteer campus, however, the Academy is a separate school located on the first floor of the Main Building.
