The AHA Schedule
AHA schedules classes on an eight-day cycle. Each day is divided into six periods of varying lengths. The student has some unscheduled time when she is not in class. She may spend this time in the library, the cafeteria, working with a teacher in a classroom or laboratory, or with college counselors or special services.
In mid-winter, considerable time and attention is given to planning the student’s schedule of courses for the next academic year. At this time, both students and parents have the opportunity for consultation with individual instructors, department heads, and counselors concerning the student’s projected courses. At the time of course selection, students are asked to choose carefully so that changes will not be necessary. Parents must approve this initial course selection. Every effort is made to place students appropriately, but scheduling conflicts may result in a student being enrolled in an alternate selection.
