The aviation-focused charter school will offer an immersive, industry-aligned education designed to prepare students for future aerospace and aviation careers. According to a press release, AAAHS is now enrolling students, hiring teachers and preparing to open for the fall 2022 semester after signing a contract with the Alabama Public Charter School Commission in November 2021.
