High School Curriculum Overview

ASA’s high school curriculum engages students in a rigorous college preparatory study with four years of study in the core classes of English, math, science, social studies, and foreign language (Spanish or French). Students apply the skills learned in the middle school program so they are able to delve deeper into the content in each discipline. Students work with content experts that challenge them to think critically and contribute meaningfully to the scholarly environment. ASA’s high school coursework remains student-centered like the middle school program. Students work collaboratively with their classmates to discuss difficult ideas, make connections, build on prior knowledge, and push their understanding to new levels. Upon graduation, ASA students are well prepared in terms of discipline, study skills, and content knowledge to pursue any course of academic study at the university level.
