Student Questions 

To be answered by the student please! Parental help typing is fine, but we don’t consider applications where the answers clearly do not come from the kids.

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 appropriately for a shared space, including not disrupting others’ learning activities 3) Participate in making, honoring and upholding rules and structures of the community, and 4) Help solve conflicts when they arise.

Parent Questions

I understand that ALC provides a real-world learning environment for students to develop self-direction, self-motivation, and self-knowledge. As such we never require students to attend specific classes or produce specific work. The school will support students’ requests for learning, but we do not direct their 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 in conflict resolution meetings when a complaint has been filed. Beyond these, their choices are up to each child.

Tuition Contribution

ALC is funded by tuition. The current tuition is $25,000 per year. Financial assistance may be available in the form of tuition adjustments. 

To be considered for financial assistance, please proceed to our Tuition Worksheet and submit the form there.
