Greetings ASE students, parents and staff

We will be making a change in the format of our school announcements and I hope you find the new format easier to manage. You can always access announcements from the Academy Quick Links on our school web page. We will send announcements out via email at least once a week.

School-Wide Project Collaboration - City of Bloomington Utilities Award

Check on the link below to read about the award the City received for their collaboration during our school-wide project.

Summer School:

MCCSC will offer students the opportunity to recover missing credits for graduation through Plato. Ms. Gross will be sending letters home early next week informing students that will be required to attend summer school. Summer school runs from Tuesday, June 4th - Friday, July 12th. ASE does not offer credit recovery during the school year due to staffing limitations and the overall structure of our freshman/sophomore program.

School Safety Reminders

This is a reminder that students needing to cross Patterson Drive should do so at the Adams Street stoplight. It is very unsafe to cross Patterson at the crosswalk on Issac Drive near the gas station because cars do not have to stop and drivers do not pay attention. We had a very close call this morning with a driver that was not paying attention. I have notified MCCSC to express concern about the safety of this crosswalk and they will work with the City to improve the situation.


The Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship’s Business Professionals of America chapter is hosting a fundraiser.

Solution Tree’s High School Summer Internship Program

Solution Tree is a rapidly growing educational publishing company based in Bloomington, Indiana. Solution Tree employees and interns enjoy an innovative, team-oriented environment at a great downtown location.

Solution Tree’s Summer Internship Program has been developed to help pique the interest of college bound high school students planning for a career in any number of business related fields, including (but not limited to): publishing, marketing/sales, accounting, professional development, customer service, or event/conference planning. Qualified students entering their junior or senior year in high school are eligible for this six-week internship program. This program provides area high school students with an opportunity to learn more about different careers.

Students are required to work 2 days per week, 6 hours per day, for the internship period. This internship program is unique. Instead of working in only one department during their internship, at Solution Tree, students will work in a variety of different departments. Students will spend one week in each of the six different areas listed above. The goal is to give students exposure to different roles and careers. Solution Tree will provide a kick off celebration to start their internship and will host a recognition reception for the students and their parents at the end of their assignment. Upon satisfactory completion of the six-week internship program, each intern will receive a $1000 monetary gift.

See attached details and application below.
