Our Students

HASS students hail from six different counties in the Black Belt of Alabama including Sumter, Hale, Perry, Tuscaloosa, Lowndes and Marengo counties. Students in the program range from rising 9th graders to rising 12th graders.

Each year, rising 9th and 10th graders are recruited by their teachers and nominated to apply for HASS. Prospective students go through a rigorous application process where they are required to obtain two letters of recommendation, write two personal statements, and complete a face-to-face interviews.
