Clubs and Activities
Allied has a wide range of clubs, organizations, and activities, including HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America), 4H, Mock Trial, Tech Club, World Language Club, Gay-Straight Alliance, Science League, Math League, Pulse (Creative Arts), Yearbook, Model UN, Just Us, Student Council, National Honor Society, and Yearbook. Here are details about a few:

4H: 4H Animal Health and Service Club is a school based, Monmouth County 4-H club open to all students at the Academy of Allied Health and Science High School grades 9-12.The mission of the 4-H Animal Health & Service Club within our high school is to provide awareness, education, and service to animals through our club, our school, and our community. Students and animals have both reaped the benefits of our efforts both at home and abroad. Our activities range from speakers, animal visits, veterinary science topics, handmade items for shelters, to fundraising. Some activities are just for school spirit such as pet photo contests, Wii bowling, door decorating contests and pet calendars.

We meet every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month September to June during the activity time 11am – 11:30am for all business meetings.  Click here for the Allied 4H web site.


HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America). HOSA is the only nationally recognized student club for the Health Sciences. It incorporates service and leadership components. Past service events have included blood drives, used clothing drives, cards for currently serving military men and women abroad and toiletry packs for veterans. One of the avenues in which leadership is both recognized and rewarded is through competition. Leadership conferences at the regional, state and national levels challenge students in a variety of health-related events. Students must place in the top five to move from regionals to states and must place first in New Jersey to move on to national competition.  Nineteen Allied Students placed in the top ten at the HOSA Nationals this past June in Orlando, Florida. The Creative Problem Solving team of Manish Arora, Hailey Hyun, Shashank Kuderu and Chas Morse was a first place National winning team!  The club is open to juniors and seniors, and meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.

Math League. This club is open to all students of all abilities. It allows its members to express their interest in mathematics. Students participate in the NJ Math League monthly contest during the activity period as well as the AMC10 & 12 contest, which is given after school. Monthly meetings are held every fourth Tuesday of the month. These meetings are student driven, allowing the members of the club to research and present topics of their interest that are not necessarily covered in their mathematics classes, delve into the history of mathematics, and plan logical puzzle days, math tournaments, and a school-wide Pi Day celebration.

Mock Trial Club. The Mock Trial Club is an extracurricular program in which students participate in rehearsed trials to learn about the legal
system in a competitive manner. Mock trial is an excellent and creative way to learn about the law. Students prepare and simulate a
trial by playing the roles of attorneys, witnesses, and bailiffs. Students learn the rules of evidence, proper courtroom decorum, and the importance of law in a democratic society. Mock trial increases student confidence, oral speaking skills, critical thinking skills, poise
and teamwork skills. The Mock Trial team meets every Monday & Wednesday at 11am in Room 102  from September- January and competes annually in the Monmouth County High School Mock Trial Competition at the Freehold County Courthouse.

Model United Nations. Model United Nations, also known as Model UN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which is usually organized by a high school or college MUN club. Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students across the country and around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. The Model United Nations club meets every Monday & Wednesday at 11am in Room 102 from January- June and competes in various MUN conferences throughout the state.

National Honor Society (NHS). The National Honor Society (NHS) is a selective organization that is only open to juniors and seniors who meet and uphold certain requirements in four main areas. These four pillars, which are examined in order to achieve membership, include scholarship,
service, leadership, and character. Members must demonstrate and fulfill the requirements listed below in order to obtain membership. The NHS not only recognizes the achievements of students, but also challenges them to continue personal growth in all four of these areas through involvement in the organization and its numerous activities here at AAHS and in the community.

Pulse: The Allied Club For The Creative Mind. This is a student driven yet faculty advised club that encourages the fine and performing arts here at our school. Our first year resulted in several movie nights, an evening at The Two River Theater, and a production of an original play. Our second year line-up, so far, consists of monthly performance workshops leading to a holiday concert in December. We are also in the process of launching a very exciting film club. Pulse meetings take place every other Friday in room 104 at 11am.

Science Club. This is an academically-oriented extracurricular program that allows students to explore science in various ways. Although there is a focus on competitive exams such as the Biology Olympiad and NJ
Science League, there are also many fun activities and demonstrations for all to partake. All students are welcome to join. Science doesn’t have to be all work, play is good too! Check out our website for more information concerning meetings, competitions, etc. 

Student Council. The AAHS Student Council consists of the four elected class officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary) from each of the Academy’s four classes. The Student Council as a whole attempts to meet the needs of the entire AAHS student body by addressing specific grade level concerns as well as general school issues. The class officers plan and coordinate fundraising activities and service projects for their respective grades and for the Academy as a whole. Additionally, Student Council members work with the Student Council Faculty Advisor to plan the events of Color Wars, the Academy’s spirit week.




Students of Service. 
Students of Service (SOS) is a project based service club at Allied. We are open to anyone who is interested in doing service for the school or community either as a team leader or team participant. If you want to lead a project, come to our meetings, pitch your
idea, and recruit team volunteers. Our club is a great way to do service, and to get both service and leadership hours. In the past, we have done projects such as collecting eye glasses for third world countries, donating used sports equipment to the underprivileged, and holding a year end carnival to raise funds.








Team Allied. Team Allied is a committee in which students representing each grade level are selected to facilitate 
incoming freshmen adapt to the AAHS environment.  In order to be a member of this group, a student applies during his/her freshmen year and is selected through an application process. This includes writing an essay explaining why he/she wishes to be a member and character references by individual teachers upon student request.  Based on teacher recommendations, students are invited to be interviewed by the 
principal, advisor, and senior members of the group.   From the applicant pool, eight freshmen students are selected each year.  Students stay as members of Team Allied through their years in high school. 

Activities for this group include twice monthly meetings as well as organizing and participating in Freshmen Orientation in April/May, first day ice breaking activities at the park, and peer buddy groupings in which each TEAM ALLIED member is a mentor to an in-coming student. Our goal is to make sure that all our students are involved, adjusted and are ready to fully participate in the Academy of Allied Health and Science community. 

The Tech Club: The AAHS Tech Club provides service to the AAHS community. The main service is the Video Morning Announcements (VMAs) every Wednesday & Friday morning.  Tech Club members meet in the Media Center on these mornings to set up the camera, run a video intro (sometimes with student produced ‘commercials’) and then broadcast live anchors sharing the AAHS news of the day. In addition to the VMAs, Tech Club members provide tech support to the AAHS population with website adjustments, simple repairs and help with computer setup.

World Language Honor Society. The Spanish and Latin Honor Societies are opened to students who pursue language study during their senior year at the Academy of Allied Health and Science.  The options for senior year language study are Spanish 4 or 5 (depending on the level of the student) or Latin 4.   In order to be eligible for membership, a student must have accumulated a 92.0% average in their language studies through their junior year at Allied.  A student must maintain a 92.0% average as he/she continues his/her language course during senior year.  Students who qualified are inducted into the respective honor society in the fall.  


Yearbook. The AAHS Yearbook Club members create a lasting record of the year in the lives of the people of Allied.  The book includes photos of every staff member and student, and commemorates the many clubs, events, and random goings-on that make Allied unique and wonderful. Students from every grade level are invited to participate. The club meets Fridays at 10:30 in room 111, and has frequent after-school work-and-pizza meetings for those who are able to stay later.
