Every individual at AMS is important to the health and success of our community.  Student’s personalities and interests shape our culture each year. With a maximum of 27 students, every student’s presence is easily felt and appreciated for their unique talents and character. We want your middle schooler to thrive and feel comfortable being themselves as they learn to interact with others and be part of a larger community.

To ensure the best fit for your child, our admission process seeks to learn as much about them and your family as we can.  With this information, we determine how your child will successfully fit into our community and what special resources they will need for to achieve that success.

The application process includes:

  • parent application and letter describing student’s family and academic history
  • student application
  • two day, two night interview on campus
  • two references

We are willing to consider students with special needs, but staff are not trained to accommodate students with severe emotional or learning differences. Admission decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity or expression, or economic status.
