The primary goal in the High School at AST is to provide a balanced education that develops curiosity and enthusiasm in our students for pursuits in academics, community service, the arts, athletics, or any area that you might be passionate about. We aim to nurture in our students a commitment to personal improvement and growth that promotes continuous learning, a sense of empathy and civic mindedness that keeps them connected to their communities, and integrity to keep them on a good path in life. Our High School program lays the foundation for success in college and for a fulfilling life in adulthood.
The High School program supports and challenges students by creating an atmosphere of thinking, participation, and exploration and gives students opportunities to take well-advised risks in a caring environment.
