AHS Academic Prep

Each summer the Academic Committee, the Resident Director and the relevant AHS guidance counselors assess the individual needs of incoming students and create a pre-school academic prep program designed to prepare all ABC students to succeed at AHS beginning with the first day of school. Scholars are required to arrive at ABC several days prior to the start of the classes in order to settle in, orient themselves to the program, and possibly participate in the ramp-up program designed to enrich their academic skills and knowledge.

In past years, ABC has held a three day ramp-up program during which:

--Seniors previewed Calculus concepts and the pre-requisite skills necessary for the senior academic track.

--Freshman spent two days focusing on skills and concepts in Freshman math and one day on Freshman science concepts.
