NEW FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2023/24
THE ANH INNOVATION LAB
Through the generous support of alumnae and friends, AHN is proud to introduce the new Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab offers the latest video production technology, powerful workstations and 3-D printers, programs for coding, and advanced equipment for CAD technology and robotics. The Innovation Lab is a creative space, open to all departments, which encourages the development of both faculty- and student-guided experiential learning. It will manifest in projects that can be carried into college interviews, internships, and into the world.
We have a math teacher available to assist students with homework and math problems, as well as test reviews and preparation.
Help with SAT preparation is also offered.
THE WRITING CENTER
Completing high school writing assignments can often be difficult. That’s why we have a special Writing Center with peer tutors who have advanced training as writing teachers.
Students are encouraged to sign up for individual appointments, but walk-ins are also welcome.
For students who need further assistance in English courses, we have a Writing Workshop that meets for regularly scheduled sessions.
THE LEARNING WORKSHOP
Some students look for help in reaching their academic potential. Our Learning Workshop staff provides individual instruction in study skills and time management, as well as assistance with homework, and, when required, testing modifications.
Students may use these services by either meeting for regularly scheduled sessions or on an as-needed basis.
