Mr. Brandon Arnolds Digital Media class has been busy making some revisions here at the ALC. Those revisions are not on the building, but on the faculty and their faces.

The class says that they plan on doing a poster sized rendition for each member of our faculty throughout the school year. The most recent revision is in honor of our awesome principal, Wade Tischner.

We look forward to the creativity of our ALC students and their future posters.

Medical Forensics get Timeline down to a science

Article by Shelley Heaton- Photos by Natalie Grant

The Medical Forensics class was recently asked to create a timeline of the history of Forensics. It was amazing to see the hard work and detail that went into these timelines. Natalie Grant, who is the instructor of this course, is always helping the students learn through hands on projects.

It is always fun to see what cool things this class is doing from week to week.

For all of you girls out there. This Seminar is for YOU!!!

Put on your calendars and plan to register for this fun and informative event.

First Two Weeks

Shelley Heaton

   The first two weeks of school here at the Advanced Learning Center went off without a hitch. The students seemed to transition into the pace of learning here at the ALC without any difficulty.

    As a faculty, it is fun to watch, as 5 different high schools mesh together to create an atmosphere of friends learning and growing in their education together. It is a unique experience to witness these students grow into life-long friends and even attend each other's school functions, whether they are sporting games, choir concerts or even each other's graduation.  

ALC Hosts Interactive Open House

Shelley Heaton

The ALC held an interactive open house on Aug. 30 & Sept. 6th from 3-7 pm.  Parents and students were able to come and get registration and scheduling help for any students taking concurrent enrollment classes through either, UVU or Weber State University.  We cannot thank enough, the two ladies who spear-headed this open house to make it the success it was.  Huge shout out and thanks to Annette Pukahi, Counselor and Miranda Hjorth, Secretary/Registrar.

These lovely women spent countless hours getting students registered and enrolled into the classes.

New Face at ALC

Shelley Heaton

    The start of a new school year can be a bit scary, especially if you are starting a new school. As the students walked into the Advanced Learning Center on the first day of classes, they were greeted with a smiling face. It was also this person's first day at a new school.  This smiling face was our new Principal here at the Advanced Learning Center; Principal Wade Tischner.

He personally greeted each and every student as they walked through the doors on the first day of school, making each one feel welcome and happy to be here. 

Students Enjoy the New Student Lounge Facelift

Shelley Heaton

The ALC recently went through a change. The student lounge recieved a fresh new look with new paint and new decor. We sure hope the students enjoy the change of atmosphere. 

We will be annoucing details within the next week for a contest that is going to take place in the newly updated student lounge. Check back for more information!
