Dear Academy for Scholarship and Entrepreneurship (ASE) High School Scholar Applicant and Parent,

We are so delighted that you chose to visit our website to learn more about becoming a ASE Scholar. Whether you are a middle school student looking for that perfect high school, a high school student looking to transfer for a different high school experience, or a parent hoping to find information that would make this tough choice easier, we are glad you came.

Our ASE community of scholars comes from over 70 different public and private elementary and middle schools from all over the Bronx, Queens, Westchester, and Manhattan, with scholars from all backgrounds, religions and races. While many of our scholars come to us as honor roll students, student council presidents, and sports MVPs, others come to us because they want the opportunity to develop their own identity and their particular strengths and passions in a supportive environment. In any case, this means great things for you if you decide to join our community because you will be in great company. You will have peers who will motivate you academically, influence you to make wise decisions socially, and encourage you to be compassionate leaders for change in the world.

If, after visiting our website, you would like to call us for more information or to set up an appointment to visit, we would love to hear from you. Call or email Ms. Barham in the Recruitment Office at 718-696-3840 Ext 2223 or
