Since 1978, the Academy of Scholastic Achievement (ASA) operated as a public high school aimed at serving the needs of students whose needs were not met at a traditional high school. ASA’s mission is to meet students as they are academically, socially, and emotionally, fostering a path to graduation.
At the heart of ASA is the belief that every child can excel and deserves a quality education, no matter his or her social, economic or personal status. To that end, ASA has embraced a holistic, therapeutic approach and has developed a performance-based academic program focused on student engagement, individualized instruction and culturally relevant material. To complement its educational services, ASA also offers counseling and social services to help students remove barriers to success and help them develop a strong sense of self.
