American Legion High School (ALHS) is the only continuation high school in Sacramento City Unified School District. American Legion provides small class sizes that enable students to receive one-to-one assistance both academically and socially from counselors and teachers. We have a diverse community, 16 teachers and two counselors.


The Academy is an alternative educational program housed at American Legion High School.  The program is offered  to 9-10 grade students who are having behavior issues and/or are credit deficient at a comprehensive high school site.  Students will be offered smaller classroom sizes and a variety of instructional programs. Students will be able to accelerate credit recovery and have the option of returning to a comprehensive high school on track to graduate or stay at American Legion High School.
