Take as much math, science and art courses. I know Architecture is one of my top three decisions for a major, so I would consider applying to a good reputation university with a great Architecture field. Since you didn’t specify what type of universities, or location where you reside, I think you can do some research on the colleges around you.

Advanced mathematics, calculus, tech design (Gives you blue print making and reading skills), and any structure or engineering classes.
Also of course, art would also help with your creativity of designs.

I’m actually a third year architecture major studying at Philadelphia University so hopefully I can help.

Contrary to popular belief there isn’t (or at least there doesn’t have to be) a lot of math involved with architecture. Architecture is about the design and layout of spaces. The most math you’ll ever need in architecture school is basic calculus. So at least get an introduction to that in high school.

Art is a huge part of design and architecture. Take as many art studios as you can. Any sculpting, woodworking, or metalworking courses will help you start to think in three dimensions. Architects have to be good at thinking on and off of paper. (most schools require a portfolio for submission into their arch. program so keep that in mind)

The computer has really revolutionized the architecture profession so make sure you’ve had an intro to at least AutoCAD and Photoshop.

As far as I’m concerned there’s really no such thing as a “good” architecture school. This is because they all teach a different set of skills. Some school are more conceptual and others, more technical. It’s really up to you.

That being said, any Ivy league school is a safe bet & any school in a city will be able to give you a rich education because there’s so much to experience and explore.

Hope this helps.
