The goal of the Advanced Studies & Programs (ASP) Office is to give all students access to challenging and engaging opportunities throughout their education. With offerings from Kindergarten through 12th grade, each ASP program offers ways for students to get involved in rigorous studies focused around a specific topic or type of learning environment.
We work closely with the Office of Curriculum and Instruction (C&I), the Office of Student Services, and many other AACPS departments to develop programs and opportunities that further Anne Arundel County's vision for Programs of Choice .
The Programs of Choice initiative, pioneered by former Superintendent Dr. Kevin Maxwell, offers a range of specialized opportunities to provide our students with choice in their education. Through these programs,the Advanced Studies & Programs office is working to increase excellence and opportunities for all students.
