Welcome to The Alcove

While we’re not back to hosting in-person gatherings yet, we’ve missed community events! Through the 2021-2022 school year, you’ll find listings of online events on this page. Updates will start September 13th and continue monthly from there.

Coffee with a Facilitator

Let’s chat about self-directed education! This will be a regularly offered informal space to share learnings, bring questions, and hang out. ALC-NYC facilitators will take turns hosting. Abby’s up first. BYOB. Coffee optional.
