As one of the pillars of our institution, we provide a competitive interscholastic athletic program intended to enrich and enhance the educational experience of our students. At AAS, we believe athletics are a way to engage, support and prepare our students for today and tomorrow. Our athletic community values teamwork, school spirit, and the development of individual skills and self-esteem through training and competition. Emphasis is placed not on winning and losing, but on meeting the challenges of competition to the best of our ability. We believe coaches are both teachers and role models for our athletes and should therefore foster a positive attitude, respect for fair play, and a commitment to lifelong fitness.
