Each year ASTI enrolls 50 students into the 9th grade class. Should more than 50 students apply and be eligible for enrollment, a lottery will be held to allocate positions in the freshman class and determine the order of the wait list. The lottery process will be differentiated by math level to ensure balanced class sizes. ASTI can admit up to 22 students for 9th grade Algebra 1, up to 22 students for 9th grade Geometry, and up to 6 students for 9th grade Algebra 2.

PROFILE OF A SUCCESSFUL ASTI STUDENT:

1. Middle School GPA 3.0 or above

2. Excellent attendance – no pattern of absences or tardies

3. Passing grades – Minimal to no D’s and F’s on transcript
