Students are often admitted to prestigious institutions or institutions of their choice, and many receive full tuition scholarship packages in the state of Alabama. ASMS graduates come from all 67 counties in Alabama, so our graduating classes represent the best and the brightest from across the state.

Graduation Day

Graduation Day is one of the momentous days of the year at ASMS. ASMS commencement exercises are held in May with a preceding senior convocation awards ceremony. Each member of the senior class wears a blue graduation gown and mortarboard cap as well as an ASMS stole given to them by the school. Graduating class members also wear pins and colored cords to signify membership in service organizations or national honor societies. Graduation Day is a regal, academically-focused day of celebration.
