ASA is a learning institution for students and teachers, preparing young people for success in a fast-paced and rapidly changing world. Through an intensive college-preparatory curriculum, we stretch out students to think critically and creatively and achieve high academic standards. Students become expert researchers and presenters during the third quarter as they prepare integrated academic presentations (3QP) and present their work to teachers, parents, and sometimes other school stakeholders.  ASA students delve into the learning process with a focus on continuous improvement, practice, and eventual performance – developing a crossover work ethic that ­bridges arts and academics and creates truly remarkable young people.


Academic Accolades

While we recognize that our students are much more than their test scores and statistics, we celebrate the success of each graduating class. The senior class averages a 3.5 grade point average (GPA), with more than 38% of the senior class earning a 4.0 GPA or higher. Each year the graduating class shows diverse interests and endeavors with their college studies. The Class of 2024 shared in these pursuits, with 35% indicating studies in STEM, 17% continuing their Humanities and Arts studies, and 17% continuing their Arts focus into college through prestigious conservatory programs. Eighty-nine percent (89%) of the Class of 2024 were accepted into their top 3 college choices.
