Arts and Letters Pathway

Albemarle High School has designed a new academic pathway for our students: the Arts and Letters Pathway. The Arts and Letters Pathway will permit students to choose among fifteen areas of concentration, and in addition to course study, students will participate in internships (or mentorship),  job sharing, and a capstone project to be completed during your senior year in your pathway strand. 

Students wanting to complete a Pathway must complete a Declaration of Intent form and may enter the Pathway in either 9th or 10th grade.

For more specific information, view the following PDFs and speak to your counselor.
