Drug Free Club

Drug Free Club is a voluntary club that gives students an added reason to say “no” to drugs. By participating, students agree to random drug screens during the school year. A-Tech will also offer several perks to the students to encourage their participation. We will schedule the first drug test within the first two months of the school year. After the student takes the first drug test, they will receive a membership card from the Drug Free Club. During the rest of the school year, they may be randomly tested. To participate in the program students and their parents need to complete the membership application and turn it in to the Student Services Office.

National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is a nationwide organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Requirements for being inducted into the National Honor Society are outlined in the Student Handbook.


SkillsUSA is a national organization serving a quarter-million high school and college students and professional members who are enrolled in technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations. SkillsUSA also provides the opportunity for students to participate in career-technical competitions where they can demonstrate their skills alongside goal-oriented peers at the local, state, and national levels.

With the goal of directly benefiting the people in our area, students also focus on ways to give back through service learning, expanding leadership skills, and the use of their individual talents and energy to help in this type of endeavor.
