Dear AHS students, my name is Chih-Ching Chow. I am your new Career & College Specialist at AHS for the coming school year. It's a difficult time for all of us, I can only encourage you to stay positive, seek support from your community (including me), and be kind to yourself during these unprecedented times.

Unfortunately, I can't meet you in person yet due to the distanced learning. I will constantly update the AHS Career Center website with new information (College Night, SAT/ACT test dates and deadlines,...etc.) and send out school loop email to you.

For Seniors: please spend some time reflecting on your aspirations after AHS and planning for college applications. Think about what schools you want to apply to, what programs excite you, and discuss with your parents / guardians. Prepare for your standardized tests (SAT / ACT). Start reviewing essay topics, such as Common Application essay prompts and UC application essays, and reflect on your story and what you want to write about. 

I am excited to take questions from you now (send your questions to
