Academic Calendar

A school schedule with a different approach to holistic education for your child

A Different Approach 

We are a University-Model® school which blends aspects of a private and home schooling environment; but with all instruction provided on the ALA campus. Students attend full time schooling, three days per week for direct instruction on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Students may also attend on Mondays for additional elective opportunities and tutoring/homework help if needed.  The "University Model" name is derived from the university-style schedule, where students typically register for coursework on a semester-by-semester basis and may register for a full load or just selected courses.

Our Schedule

All students attend school Monday – Thursday with the following hours: Mondays 8:30 – 12:30, Tuesdays through Thursdays 8:30 – 3:15, Friday STEM/STEAM activities 8:30 – 12:30 (please send a snack, no lunch), Friday Field Trips – vary according to event planned.
