Career Pathways

Starting ninth grade year, AMA students pick one of our two career pathways to focus on: Digital Video or Digital Animation. In addition to college preparatory classes, AMA students take one yearly elective within their chosen pathway. Each class builds on the skills learned the year before and must be taken in order.
 
We are currently updating the courses, course titles, and extension classes for the 2019-2020 school year. Please see the colored pathways for the proposed updates!
