SAS isn't just a high school, it is an experience. It is the experience of freedom - from class choices to the very schedule of your day. It is the experience of open doors, of choosing your own path through life. Taking college courses along with regular high schools classes is a unique opportunity which cannot be found anywhere else and cannot be substituted with anything else. At SAS, you are not just a junior or senior taking a few dual-enrollment courses, you are a full-time enrollee of Miami-Dade College; taking part in two years of college life for free.

Here you will find a tight-knit community of passionate, dedicated students who simultaneously challenge and help one another through these two years. It is a group of people you cannot find in any other school - driven yet friendly, genuine yet kind. There is no other place I would rather have gone."
