We know that an AHSJ education can represent a significant financial investment for a family. Our school offers a number of payment plans in order to help families manage tuition throughout the year.

Tuition varies by grade level and we encourage you to read much more about it on the Admissions page.

College Guidance

During their sophomore year, American Heritage students begin a personalized, formal college guidance process that helps them understand their own strengths as they plan for their future. During the two-year process, our college guidance leaders develop with each student, a personalized list of potential schools and hold a series of individual and group meetings. During these meetings, goals are set to take the ACT exam, apply to colleges, develop essays, etc. Communication will also be made available to parents.
