Admission to AES

Basic entrance requirements (all AES students):

Good Discipline Record: Due to the nature of the academy’s curriculum involving outside activities as well as the height
of the building above the ground, it is imperative students conduct themselves in a mature and orderly manner.

Good Attendance: The academy’s schedule is fashioned to allow for hands-on and outside activities, thus classes are longer
than at the base high schools. Missing school places the student behind in the curriculum and adds a burden in making up missed
assignments and keeping up with current curriculum assignments and assessments.

Two recommendations (new applicants only): Each new applicant needs two recommendations from a current teacher,
school administrators or guidance counselors.

Students must enroll in the classes the academy offers each semester; due to limited classrooms and faculty, certain courses
cannot be offered at the academy, and some classes are offered only during certain semesters.


9th Grade:

Student applications are screened for the basic requirements, separated into MALE and FEMALE groups, numbered and randomly selected.
Qualified students not selected are placed in a waiting pool.

their Freshman year.
