To foster ethical and humanitarian values in our students while empowering them to achieve personal, academic, professional, and civic fulfillment
Our commitment to student success is explicit in our name.
Every interaction we have with our students is geared towards ensuring their continuing growth in both academic work and their pursuit of new interest and ideas. With our goal of connecting students to life skills, live projects relevant to their soft and technical skills-related goals, and initiatives that add meaning to their AASuccess experience, we approach the concept of success from a holistic perspective.
• To develop, educate and mentor our students through their involvement with community-based programs that foster ethical, intellectual and social development
• To create a self-sustainable learning environment between professional mentors, coaches and students based on mutual trust and respect
• To empower our students to become future leaders, responsible citizens, and agents for positive change

2014 - A Momentous Year
We have made great strides toward fulfilling our mission and vision.
We have participated in over one hundred individual and group meeting to build relationships and create business partnerships with alumni, skill mentors, business and community leaders. and parents of AASuccess students.
These outside stakeholders are excited about our direction and have pledged their support with volunteer time and collaborative work in either business or job-training programs.
