Application

 

  • Student Information

  • Please enter a value between 0 and 12.
    Please put "0" for kindergarten

  • The Basics

  • Please note, we cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate requests for a different week.
    Please select if you are applying for a mid-year enrollment or to begin in September 2017.
  • Student Questionnaire

    These questions are to be answered by the student. (It's fine for the parent to type or enter the information for younger students, but the answers should come from them.)
    An ALC is an environment where students of every age are free to direct their own learning and activities, yet this freedom comes with responsibilities. I understand that I am expected to: 1) Treat others with respect (whether student, volunteer, staff or parent), 2) Behave appropriate for a shared space such that I don't interfere or disrupt others learning activities, 3) Participate in making, honoring and enforcing rules and structures of the community, and 4) Help solve conflicts when they arise.

    Please attach any examples of your work you'd like to share with us. (max 10)
  • Parent Questionnaire

    I understand that the ALC provides a real-world learning environment for students to develop self-direction, self-motivation and self-knowledge and as such never requires students to attend specific classes or produce specific work. The school will support student's requests for learning, but does not direct learning activities according to any curriculum. The School Meeting may make certain activities mandatory for the smooth operation of the school. Currently these are: morning meetings, end of day meetings, clean-up, fire drills, and appearing when a complaint has been filed. Beyond these, the choices are up to each child.
  • ALC is funded by tuition. The current tuition is $22,500 per year. Financial assistance may be available in the form of tuition adjustments.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
