Founded in 1968, Alexander-Smith Academy (ASA) is a private, college-preparatory high school in Houston in Harris County, Texas. In addition to college-preparatory courses, ASA offers Advanced Placement and Honors courses. We are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and by the Texas Education Agency.
ASA is structured around a four day week, Monday through Thursday, with Friday serving as a day of enrichment tutorials, group workshops and projects, and extra curricular activities. We offer:
- College preparatory high school program
- Advanced Placement (AP) courses
- Honors courses
Individual Educational Instruction:
One of the unique aspects of ASA is class size. We are dedicated to individual educational instruction and classes at all levels are taught in a structured, individualized environment. Classes are small enough (5-7 students per class) for students to get the personal attention they need. Classes are large enough, however, to foster interaction, discussion and debate.
ASA limits enrollment to seventy students to ensure unique and individualized instruction. ASA's student body reflects a unique population, and the school serves students who have distinct educational needs. Actors, models, ballerinas, equestrians and athletes in training for the Olympics need daily time requirements for the extra curricular activities, and ASA can offer each student individual flexibility. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. The comfortable surroundings invite the students to apply themselves.
Students are encouraged to participate in school sponsored clubs, organizations, and group activities. These include Volunteer Service Club, Student Council, literary magazine and food, toy and clothing drives. Students selected to ASA's National Honor Society chapter, Alpha Sigma Alpha, must meet rigorous academic requirements, and perform extensive volunteer community service. One of the most lively groups on campus is the Volunteer Service Club, which requires its members to be active in their community.
