By being the best version of yourself, you can inspire the same in others.

ASFA students
  • At ASFA, students find classmates, teachers and advisors - who challenge them to take their ideas to the next level, who support them when they're in doubt, and who cheer them on when they confront big hurdles. It's the kind of community that helps students take the positive risks they need to become their best selves. Everything at ASFA is made possible through our passionately engaged and supportive community.

    How do you build a community like that? You see it happen as a musician stays after practice to help a classmate perfect her tone; during a dorm-wide community scavenger hunt; as two friends come together to pitch a new environmental initiative to the administration; or while a student and a teacher puzzle over a calculus problem over lunch.

    In short, you'll find that ASFA students are passionate and committed to not only their specialty, but to their community. Our students use their powerful influence on one another for good.

    Good morning!  These are your morning announcements. 

    PEACE Birmingham is an organized group of teens from the metro area who are from different religions, races, gender/sexual identities and ethnicities, and they get together one Sunday a month to talk and create doors through which they can learn about each other's communities and nurture and sustain a Birmingham that values and welcomes all people. The students often become allies, talk about how to deal with prejudice, and learn other life skills. They are looking for new members. If you are interested, go to https://www.acealabama.org/peacebirmingham.html this week to sign up!

    Messages from the cafeteria: Wednesday lunch will be a Baked Potato bar instead of the Deli Bar, and we plan to swap Wednesday and Thursday’s dinner for dorm students.  Philly Cheese Steaks will be served on Wednesday and Lasagna Roll will be served on Thursday.  Thank you.
