High School

Welcome to the High School at ASL, where your child will have unique and exciting opportunities as both a learner and as a young adult. High school is a journey of self-discovery, reflection and exploration. And our talented and creative faculty and staff are committed to supporting our students as they work towards finding their identity and begin to make sense of their place in the world.

Our school community works collaboratively to encourage and support the healthy development of our students, their social-emotional well-being, and their academic ability. Our faculty and staff in the High School put students at the center of every discussion. Students themselves are expected to play an important role in determining the paths that they will forge during their time in the High School. While evolving their sense of independence, academic acumen, and sense of self, students practice and internalize ASL’s core values—respect, responsibility, kindness, integrity and the courage to act.

High school students have access to a wide array of rigorous and exciting courses and diverse extracurricular offerings that challenge them to develop their skills in collaboration, innovation and communication. Additionally, ASL’s location in London offers a wealth of experiences and learning opportunities for our students and employees. The academic and extracurricular program is augmented by myriad domestic and international travel opportunities and service-related experiences. The different components of the ASL high school experience combine to prepare our students for the next phase of their lives as responsible citizens of the world. The ASL High School is an experience like no other.
