High School Planning
The Guidance Department assists students and their parents in determining proper placement in respective classes. Looking at past student performance and future goals we attempt to find those classes that both challenge and allow the students to be successful while preparing them for their future academic goals.
As students progress through each year, the guidance counselors ensure that parents receive progress report and report cards on a timely basis. Up-to-date academic performance is also available to parents online through the PlusPortals website. Parents are encouraged to check frequently and contact teachers or the guidance department when they have academic questions or concerns.
As students approach the time to decide about “life after high school,” college visits are arranged, usually in their junior year. Girls also have the opportunity to meet with admissions officers of many colleges/universities who visit AHF.
Sophomore and junior students are given the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT and use on-line sites for continued academic support and access to SAT practice tests. Students are encouraged to take the SAT in the fall and spring of their junior year as well as the fall of their senior year. Practice SATs are offered to all students throughout the school year. Students may register for an evening course in SAT evening to help students improve their standardized test scores. There is a fee for this course.
