Students interested in attending AOC must live in the Wm. S. Hart District boundaries at time of application. At the meeting, we give an extensive overview of the school and the type of student who does well in our environment.

Students must be ready for the rigor of our program. They don't have four years to acquire the content and skills necessary to go to college since they start transferable college level classes when they enter AOC. We look for students who are mature and have grades mainly of A and B. Students with lower grades can apply but we will look into their records to see why they earned a C. For example, if they consistently don’t turn in their homework, they should NOT apply since they won’t do well here. If, however, they earned a C in math but did all their homework and tried, we would recognize they might be average in math but they work hard, are a good student, could do well at AOC, and should apply. Students who want to be here, have good study habits, and are mature usually thrive in our environment.


Students and parents must attend the information meeting so they have a full understanding of the school before they apply. Applications are not available until after the junior high meeting on 1/24. Instructions on how to apply will be made available at the meeting and on the website after 1/24.


Applications are due no later than Friday, February 23rd. We will not accept late applications.
