From the Principal

Welcome to The Academy for Social Action

We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit The Academy for Social Action’s website. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer..

ASA students will become college-bound family and community leaders who are concerned for the rights and welfare of others, socially responsible, and confident in their capacity to make a difference. Our students will realize their innate potential and learn to capitalize on their strengths by understanding where they are now and focusing on their futures.

ASA is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful middle and high school experience. In every way that schools are measured, whether it is academically, in the fine and performing arts, or athletically, ASA will excel.

Our curriculum, course offerings, and extra-curricular offerings are second to none. We strive to create an environment where our core values; scholarship, leadership, and fellowship guide our students. Every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success.

All of this is made possible by strong partnerships that are developed with our staff and parents. I hope that our website will assist in helping you navigate through our community. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ms. C. Simmons
