The Alabama legislature founded ASMS in 1989 to educate our state's future leaders. The first students arrived on campus in 1991, and the first class graduated in 1993. For over 30 years, ASMS has offered an accelerated, college-level STEM education to 10th-12th graders from all 67 counties in Alabama, positively changing their education and career outcomes for a lifetime. Today, we are proud that our nearly 3000 alumni are giving back to Alabama and the world as leaders in every sector.

In 2023, the school celebrated30 years of graduates and 30+ years of making a positive impact on Alabama students and the STEM workforce! The school enjoyed a week-long 30 years celebration with special events like Ann Bedsole Day, Spring Research Forum and an Alumni Reunion.
