Academy Fight Song
Listen to the Fight Song
 (MP3 format)

Faithful and true hearted.
Let us cheer our dear old High.
We'll revere her and defend her,
And her colors proudly fly.
We will stand for her united.
Of her deeds we'll gladly tell.
Her colors streaming,
Glad faces beaming,
Let's give a cheer for her,
That we love so well.

Loyal and ever faithful,
Let us cheer for our old High.
Let every heart sing.
Let every voice ring.
There's no time to grieve or sigh.
It's ever onward,
Our course pursuing.
May defeat ne'er,
Our ardor cool.
But united we will boost for our,
Old High School!
