This school is so different then what it is made out to be! A lot more challenging with little to no time for extra activities. Upon arriving at this school make sure to stay focused and devote your entire life to school. It's extremely expensive and getting any help from financial aid is difficult. The school is very small with about 200 kids per class year but I actually like that. It makes approaching teachers a lot easier.

You don't really get a variety of courses. There are very specific classes you must take for your program and you are only allowed to choose a few electives. You may not even get the elective you want as the registration process is horrible. You have to log in at exactly the right time and hope that the class is still available. They let a lot of people who do sports and are in specific programs register ahead of time so there aren't a lot of open seats left. Class sized are generally around 20-25 people for labs, electives, humanities and english classes. For science lectures they will contain your whole class so somewhere around 150 people. Professors are ok, sometimes you have to teach yourself. This college if an ok college but just be prepared to totally devote your whole life to school work. Very demanding and fast paced.

The housing is OK at ACPHS. Freshman year I would say has the best housing believe it or not. The room I had in South Hall was pretty big and we had our own bathroom. Which is a big deal because most schools only have a bathroom that the whole hallway shares. Sophomore year housing lottery is SO bad. It is completely based on GPA so it can be difficult to get what you want. They fill up each suite which is 7 people with 2 toilets and 2 showers; or 5 people and an RA living with you with 2 toilets and 2 showers. Junior year you can choose to live in Holland/Princeton housing "on-campus", or move to UH College Suites which is technically off campus but it is the closest housing to the Student Center. You can also choose to get an apartment off campus.
