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

  • 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 face 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. 

     

    ASFA is starting a running club for beginning and experienced runners! Starting in February, the club will meet on campus, at parks and trails around Birmingham to move together, encourage one another and build a spirit of community and friendly competition at ASFA. If you have never run before or if you are nervous to get started, do not fear. We’d love for you to get involved. The club will meet twice a month for two hours on Saturdays. Meeting times and locations will be announced. The Couch-to-5K program will be used to ensure that everyone—no matter where you’re starting from—will be ready to participate in the 5K Zoo Run at the Birmingham Zoo on  

    May 20. If you are an avid runner, your expertise is welcomed too.  

     

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Running Club Sponsors: 

    Russell Hehn - rhehn@asfaschool.org 

    Samantha Simmons - ssimmons@asfaschool.org 

     

    The first formal meeting will be during lunch/homeroom on Tuesday, Jan. 31 in Mr. Hehn’s classroom, room 221, and the first scheduled run is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11. Hope to see you there! 

     

    A limited number of grants of $1,000 - $2,000 are available for Summer Intensive programs recommended by Specialty Faculty. Grants will be considered for recommended programs based on the student’s particular skills and potential for advancement and/or access to opportunities different from those offered in the ASFA curriculum. Grants are intended to support efforts to strategically augment a student’s growth in their specialty, as opposed to general exploration of a school, region, or topic. Recommendations completed by 3/1/23 will be reviewed by the Grant/Financial Aid Committee. Payments will be made directly to the Program. Please check your ASFA email for a form that was emailed to all students in grades 8-11 from Beth Mulvey in the ASFA Foundation to apply.
