Faculty And
 Support Staff


The Admissions Office is now accepting online applications for all grades for the 2018-2019 school year. 

Although there is no formal deadline to apply, early applications are always encouraged as spaces may be limited for some grades.

Construction is currently underway for the new ASD Middle School building to be completed in time for August 2019 enrollment, paving the way for expansion in both Middle School and High School. In anticipation, ASD is committed to a small increase in student and faculty members in both Middle and High School for the 2018-2019 school year. Families with children in Middle and High School are invited to submit their applications for next school year now.
