Beyond the Classroom

After you enroll, you won't just learn from books—you'll learn from life

An AHS education means more than just lectures and lab time. Our students are active in the community and in their fields, creating opportunities and forming relationships that shape their future. We believe that you’re always learning, no matter where you are.

From research to community engagement to student groups and events, whatever your interests are, you’ll find support to make your time here what you want it to be.
