Dedicated to the philosophy of individualized, educational instruction, ASA challenges students and enables them to realize their innate potential.
Alexander-Smith Academy's mission is to offer a college-preparatory high school education in a relaxed, safe and comfortable environment.
Students, teachers and advisors achieve an optimum learning atmosphere by working together.
Treating students as young adults fosters graduates who are equipped to lead productive lives in a complex, pluralistic society.
ASA's primary goal is to create an environment in which each student can aquire the knowledge necessary to develop intellectual maturity.
A structured curriculum, which includes Honors and Advanced Placement course levels, is fundamental in achieving this goal, as are the unique five to seven students per class and daily tutorials.
