Students interested in entering AAST in the eleventh grade because of their interest in one of the career majors offered must follow the district's established timeline when submitting their application. These students must meet all academic requirements and have earned enough credits to be qualified as an eleventh grader.
Students who apply to AAST will be evaluated on aptitude, previous coursework, and interest. Interest will be determined by a screening process, which includes an interview conducted at AAST.
Applications are available throught the AAST webiste and the Horry County Schools website. Students should be prepared to make a two-year commitment to AAST and their chosen major. Students will be notified of their acceptance and asked, along with their parents, to sign a commitment form to participate during the upcoming school year.
