Alameda Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) is a small, Early College High School (ECHS) with a community of staff, students, and parents/guardians who are all focused on the shared goal of college-readiness. We believe that high school students can develop content understanding and the academic maturity level required to succeed in college courses while still enrolled in high school. We are proud to be part of the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and are privileged to be partnered with the College of Alameda (COA) and Peralta Community College District (PCCD). Our program is committed to ensure ALL students, especially those who are underrepresented, are provided the resources to attain a college degree from the institution of their choice and become responsible, proactive, and empowered global citizens with a life-long love of learning.

The project is recruiting more Youth Leaders for this coming spring season! It provides extensive training in diversity, empathy, and conflict-resolution for young adults who form a vibrant cross-cultural community and serve as mentors for the 4th and 5th graders at Mosaic’s Outdoor Project.

11th/12th Graders: Make-up schedules are being passed out to students who need them starting today.  If you are given a make-up schedule, you must start following the schedule tomorrow.  Make sure to sign in on the sign-in sheets in your designated make-up schedule room.


Seniors:  Make sure you all check your to-do lists with your college accounts for the colleges you’ve applied to.  Monitor your to-do lists frequently and be mindful of any deadlines for transcript submissions, or if your college tells you that you did not meet A-G requirements.  See Ms. Jurkovich ASAP if you have any questions or if any issues arise.  Your applications could be cancelled or withdrawn if you do not submit documents required of you by the deadlines given.


Seniors:  If you will be graduating with an AA/AS Degree, you must petition for your degree with a COA counselor.  The deadline to petition for your degree is Friday, March 16th.  You may see any COA counselor to petition for your degree. It’s recommended you make an appointment soon and not wait until the last week to petition, as appointment slots fill up.  You do not need to file your IGETC by March 16th; you should file your IGETC once you have decided where you will attend college.  Email Ms. Jurkovich if you have any questions!


Juniors/Seniors:  You are now able to meet with any COA counselor when scheduling an appointment.  You are no longer restricted to seeing the ASTI counselor at COA.  When you are scheduling your appointment with COA counseling, let them know you are an ASTI student, and the reason for scheduling an appointment.


Juniors:  You should all sign up for a spring SAT with Essay exam!  The next test will be on May 5th; the registration deadline is April 6th.  Register at collegeboard.org; see Ms. Jurkovich if you qualify for a fee waiver.
