ASTI’s college registration date is on Friday, November 18th!  Lottery enrollment line lists will be posted outside of the office next week.  All 11th & 12th graders need to be present in the ASTI quad by 7:45am on the 18th to receive a ticket that corresponds to their place in the enrollment line.  Failure to arrive by 7:45am forfeits your place in line.  If you arrive after tickets have been given out, you will go to the back of the enrollment line for your class.  12th graders will register for courses first, and 11th graders second.  Students should monitor the amount of seats left in their planned classes; if they need to register for different classes on the 18th, they must have concurrent enrollment forms with them that have been signed by a parent or guardian.  No forms will be approved without parent/guardian signatures. 

10th graders registering for a COA class do not need to be present on the 18th at 7:45am. They will attend classes normally and will be called from class when it is their turn to register. 

As Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are approaching, ASTI's annual food drive is taking place! Donate any of your canned food to help the Alameda Food Bank satisfy the increased amount of food for the holidays! You can donate any type of non-perishable such as dried pasta, canned beans, cake mix, and etc.  Also, please do not donate any expired food!  As a reward for your generosity, the class that brings in the most amount of food will be awarded a hot chocolate party with desserts! So start filling up those food barrels! Food Barrels are located in:

Seniors: Mr. Rod's Room

Juniors: Ms. McCoy's Room

Sophomores: Ms. Pengelly's Room

Freshmen: Ms. Campbell's Room

Happy Food Gathering

If y'all don't already know next Thursday, Nov 17, we will be holding the Great American Smokeout, a day when we promote non-smoking. We will be holding an event at lunch with Trivia, fun prizes, and music! So, stick around in the quad at lunch next Thursday to win some cool prizes!

ASTI’s college registration date will be Friday, November 18th.  Concurrent enrollment forms and college course schedule planners are due on the following days/times:

11th grade: Thursday, November 3rd at 3:00pm

12th grade:  Friday, November 4th at 3:00pm

10th grade: Tuesday, November 8th at 3:00pm (concurrent enrollment forms only).

Students who turn in forms after their class deadline will be placed at the back of the enrollment line for their class when they register on the 18th.

COA will have an online winter intersession from December 19th through January 13th.  10th, 11th, and 12th graders may only register for one intersession course.  10th graders must have at least a 3.5 ASTI GPA to be approved for a winter intersession course.  Intersession courses are very intense courses that move at a very fast pace.  We do not recommend winter intersession courses due to the intensity of the workload over the winter break. Note that winter intersession starts during ASTI finals.  Students should not take any intersession course if it will conflict with preparation for their ASTI finals.  Winter intersession adds units to the Fall 2016 semester; if students are currently under 11 units now but taking an intersession course would bump them over 11 units, they will be charged per-unit fees for all of their units.  ASTI does not cover any fees accrued from intersession.

10th graders wishing to take a spring college course in the evening must have at least a 3.0 ASTI GPA.

9th graders will have their first opportunity to take college courses over the summer. 9th graders interested in a summer course would register in April 2017.  9th graders who wish to pursue a summer college course should understand that this is not encouraged by the ASTI program and is purely optional.  We value the emotional and developmental growth that happens during the 9th grade and want freshmen to become well-adjusted to their transition at ASTI before taking on an added college class.

Come to Trivia Night on November 18th from 3:30-5:30! Make teams up to 4 people for $20 per team. Test your knowledge and win some prizes! Tickets will be sold at lunch.

Seniors:  College application workshops will be held in the ASTI computer lab on the following day/times.  If you are unable to attend these workshops due to a college class, see Ms. Jurkovich to schedule an individual appointment to review your applications.

Friday, 11/18 3:30-4:30pm—College Application Workshop
