Application Process

Admissions Window: December 1 – June 7 

The admissions process starts by filling out the preliminary information below.  We will follow up with you via email and look to schedule an initial interview for you with an AS Administrator.  The objectives of the interview are to gain an understanding of the student’s ambitions and discuss soccer experiences.  Following the interview, you will be asked to provide transcripts, math, science and english references, and a highlight video with game footage.  AS admissions will then evaluate the student’s application package. During that time, families are asked to consider the commitment and expectations of the program to ensure AS is a good fit for the student.
