Through a tuition-free, college-level STEM education in math, science, computer science and the humanities, ASMS students gain access to academic, leadership and research opportunities that are unmatched for high schoolers in the state of Alabama. For 30 years, diverse students have come to ASMS motivated to learn and grow, and they have graduated with a stand-out resume along with a myriad of choices to attain their college and career goals.

ASMS recruits students from all 67 counties in Alabama, and the school is inviting current Alabama 9th and 10th graders in the Central Alabama area to join them for a one-hour information session in October for any of the following dates and locations:
