Application Process and Timeline

ASMS students are selected through a competitive process that considers the applicant’s academic success, maturity, and activities.


Although ASMS is located in Mobile, recruitment of candidates encompasses the state’s 67 counties. It is the policy of the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science to enroll only students who are or will be by the start of the 2025-2026 school year, legal residents of the State of Alabama.

Applicants must be current 9th or 10th graders.

Applying to ASMS is free. No one thing alone - grades, extracurricular accomplishments, teacher recommendations, standardized test scores - determines who is selected to attend ASMS. The ASMS application process takes into account the whole student.

Please note, that the application review process is strictly confidential and reasons for denial cannot be discussed with applicants or their family members.
