WHERE YOUR STUDENT GOES TO SCHOOL IS A BIG DEAL. We understand this. Families today evaluate many high school options, and you want to make this important choice collectively. AHA is here to help! We aim to support and personalize your discernment process, so as family, you find the right fit for the next four years
The best way for a prospective student to experience AHA is to spend a school-day visit as our guest. At AHA, school-day visits are not "one size fits all". From experience, we know that some visitors enjoy a school-day visit with 20-25 fellow eighth-graders. We also know that others enjoy coming on a "typical" day by themselves or with one friend. Some students like to spend their days with hosts they know, while still others like to come to AHA and meet their host for the first time. Whatever you choose, we are here to accommodate your wishes. Please read about our options and decide what works best for your family.
Future Star Days: AHA offers special school-day visits to 8th grade students. These days take place on Wednesdays. On these days, teachers of 9th graders make an effort to incorporate each visitor into the lesson plan and try not to have major exams. Future Star Days for the 16-17 school year are: October 5, November 2 & 16, December 14, January 4, February 15.
A Day of Your Choosing: Visitors benefit by seeing the AHA community on a "typical" day and we can accomodate a day that works into your schedule. With a smaller group of visitors (usually 5 or less), AHA Admissions can personalize each visit to the individual interests of each visitor. These days are less of a "special event" and more a real-live look at what AHA is like.
Note: Sometimes your middle school sets aside specific days to visit high schools. We in Admissions do our best to accommodate these specific days. The important thing is that your student has a good opportunity to experience AHA during the day!
All Visit Days: Regardless of your choice, we do our best to pair each visitor with an AHA student ambassador who shares common interests in academics and activities. Please check your family and school calendar and plan to spend a day. Students should dress comfortably (jeans are fine, just no hats or flip-flops, please) and are invited to enjoy a complementary lunch in our STARS Cafe.
We know that parents are curious and want to learn as much as you can about the AHA high school experience so you can make an informed decision with your student. We offer Parent Observation Mornings to let parents experience AHA as students do. These mornings begin at 8:00 a.m. and typically end at 9:30 a.m. and are offered monthly starting in October. Dates for the 16-17 school year are October 5, November 2, December 14, January 4, February 15, March 15.
During this time, parents have the opportunity to observe a wide range of classes, and end the morning with a Q and A discussion with staff. Feedback has been very favorable (see recent comments here and here), and parents really enjoy the chance to see students interacting with students, with teachers, and how technology and learning are incorporated into their days. Current parents join these mornings to answer your questions
