Alternative Learning Centers

Alternative Learning Center (ALC) Academies work with students at their skill level to help them build confidence in their abilities.

  • Small class sizes and greater individual attention

  • Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

  • Graduate with a High School Diploma, prioritizing the credits you need to graduate. Graduation credit requirements align with the state’s expectation of 21.5 year-long credits.

Our alternative high school students are determined to earn their diploma. We are a program for students in grades 9-12, up to age 22.

Our ALC Academies are credit-based programs that offer:

  • High school diploma classes that meet the state standards requirements

  • Modern Classroom instructional model, which uses both online and in-person components

  • Semi-flexible pacing for student work completion

We have 4 locations across the West Twin Cities Metro
