Who We Are

Educating Alabama's future leaders, scholars, and innovators since 1989

The Alabama School of Mathematics and Science is our state’s only fully public and residential high school for sophomores, juniors, and seniors seeking advanced studies in math, science, and the humanities. Tuition, room, and board are free.


Nestled in Mobile’s beautiful Old Dauphin Way Historic District, ASMS was founded by the Alabama State Legislature in 1989 to better prepare Alabama’s future leaders. ASMS also enjoys partnerships with business and industry. The state of Alabama provides the operating budget, while the facility is owned and maintained by the ASMS Foundation, a charitable group that receives donations from businesses, individuals, and other foundations.
