Both students enrolled at ASFC and students from other educational institutions may participate in the extracurricular activities program. In order for a student to participate in an extracurricular activity it is imperative that the parents/guardians fill out an enrollment application, sign in agreement with the Extracurricular Activities Regulations and pay and enrollment fee and the first monthly payment.

According to the age of the student and the activity selected, each student enrolled in a sports or extracurricular team is a representative of ASFC during friendly games and tournaments. These games and tournaments could be organized either by the school or by other educational or athletic institutions. Students enrolled in marching band, guard, chess, art, dance and orchestra represent ASFC at official events by invitation.

Students should commit to attending regular meetings and practices of sports and extracurricular activities. It is the parents/guardians responsibility to drop-off and pick-up their students according to the proper time established by each sport or extracurricular activity.
ASFC has an official try-out and selection process for soccer and basketball. The criteria for these selections are determined by the coach and the athletic coordinator. Students that meet the selection requirements and wish to participate in a sport can do so if the parents/guardians sign a permission slip promising that the student will maintain an 8.0 grade point average, demonstrate proper behavior and attend regular and extra practices and events.

Students enrolled in soccer and basketball, and who meet the necessary age requirements, will form the teams that represent the school in friendly games and tournaments. These matches can be organized by ASFC or by other educational or athletic institutions. Students enrolled in athletics, gymnastics, chess, children’s theatre and dance will be representatives of the school at official events by invitation.


The fees for registration and monthly payments are assigned twice a year by ASFC and are announced in August and January of each school year by the extracurricular coordinator. The payment of registration and monthly fees for each extracurricular activity must be made within the first 10 days of each month in the Reception Office. For the reimbursement of an enrollment or monthly fee for an extracurricular activity, parents/guardians must submit a request in writing to the Accounting Department, attaching the original receipt to the written request form.

A minimum of 10 students are required to enroll in order for an extracurricular activity to take place. In the event that this minimum is not reached, the school will drop the activity and reimburse parents/guardians for any fees that have been paid.
