How to Enroll


Once you’ve determined that AHS is your school of choice:

Enrollment Schedule

Enrollment opens January for the following school year and remains open until early October. We go to a lottery in early March if total number of students who wish to enroll is larger than available spots in a grade level at that time.

In addition, in early October we open a small handful of spots in the 9th, 10th and 11th grades for mid-year enrollment. These spots fill on a first-come, first-served basis for enrollment at the start of second semester.

Please refer to the AHS Enrollment Policy for complete details.
