Students in the AHA vocal music program have been awarded vocal scholarships to many colleges, and have been accepted into such prestigious music schools such as Manhattan School of Music and The Peabody Conservatory. In past years, they have also won the Bergen County Music Educators Vocal Scholarship and represented AHA at the All-County Music Festival.
