STUDENTS, THANK YOU FOR WEARING YOUR SHIRTS AND FOR SHOWING YOUR ALC PRIDE.
It is so fun to walk down the halls and see the students in our ALC t-shirts. We have a lot of pride here at our school. The ALC is a unique school because all 5 high schools attend here together. It's great to see the students interact with one another, even though they are from rival high schools. The atmosphere and camaraderie here at the ALC is a breath of fresh air for the faculty and staff to witness.
The Advanced Learning Center is so happy to be starting this new year, in our new building, with a new principal, Mr. Ben Ford.
Mr. Ford fits right in here with our group of faculty and staff. His commitment to making the ALC an outstanding place is already very evident and we are excited to see where his leadership will take us from here on out!
We are thrilled to have him here and look forward to a great school year.
A little FYI on Ben is as follows:
The ALC Recording studios seem to be in non-stop use these days. It is so fun to go down and listen to the awesome sounds that are coming from this part of the building. It is continually amazing to see what the students at the ALC can do.
If you haven't seen the new recording studios at the ALC, You are missing out!!
SO PROUD OF THE STUDENTS AT THE ALC AND THE TALENT THAT RESIDES IN OUR WALLS!!!
Here are 2 new links for your enjoyment.

Dear Parents and Students,
We are off to a great start at the new ALC! I want to thank everyone for their patience as we are working through the growing pains of bringing a new building online. This year we have nearly 700 students enrolled which is up from approximately 400 last year. I am excited to be part of this growth and am thrilled to have your student at our school. There are a couple of upcoming events that I want to make you aware of: ·
The first day of school here at the the ALC was so much fun for the faculty and staff here at the ALC.
It was fun to watch faces take in all of the cool new features and classrooms that are in our newly remodeled building.
The were many comments made about how cool the new building is. It brought lots of smiles to all of us.
We are so excited for this new school year and can't wait to see all the great things that these students will do this year.
