Dear AHS students, my name is Chih-Ching Chow. I am your Career & College Specialist at AHS. Please stop by at the Career Center (it's inside the Library) if you have any questions about career paths or college applications.

I will constantly update the AHS Career Center website with new information (College Night, SAT/ACT/AP test dates and deadlines,...etc.) and send out school email to you.

For Seniors: please spend some time reflecting on your aspirations after AHS and planning for college applications. Think about what schools you want to apply to, what programs excite you, and discuss with your parents / guardians. Prepare for your standardized tests (SAT / ACT) if you plan to take them. Start reviewing essay topics, such as Common Application essay prompts and UC application essays, and reflect on your story and what you want to write about.

I am excited to take questions from you now (send your questions to [email protected]).
