Welcome Back/Neon Dance

Our ASB students hosted the annual Welcome Back/Neon Dance last Friday night after the football game.  It was held in the gym, and students had a great time.


Neon Friday

Below is a picture of students in the quad during lunch on Friday, sporting their neon gear.


ID Picture Make-Up Day

Tuesday of this week was ID Picture Make-Up day.  Photographers from Monarch Photography were on campus from 8:00am until 1:00pm taking photographs of students and staff.  It was a very organized and efficient process.  The new ID cards should be here in a few weeks.


Counseling Corner

ACHS Counselors are working diligently to balance classes and provide students with the classes they need to continue on their path towards graduation.


Mock Trial

Our award-winning Mock Trial team is gearing up already!  They are a very dedicated group of students and adult mentors who love what they do.  Mock Trial is a national academic competition in which students prepare and then present a fictional criminal case before a Ventura County judge and a group of local attorneys who score the competition.  Each team has a prosecution side and a defense side made up of student attorneys and witnesses.  Our Social Science teacher, Shawn Near, has been the advisor of this awesome team for many years.  All students interested in competing in Mock Trial this year should plan to attend tryouts on Monday, Sept. 11, or Tuesday, Sept. 12, in room D-3 starting a 6:00 PM.


College and Career Center

* Each month our College and Career Center hosts representatives from a variety of colleges and universities.  Mrs. Isaac posts who the visiting schools will be several weeks in advance, so students have a chance to sign up to attend the information sessions that interest them.  During the month of September, representatives from the following schools will be coming to our campus:
