ACLC Learners at Work
a Tuition-free public charter school

Our History

Learners at Hannah Camp
rooted in a community vision

When ACLC first opened its doors in 1996, it was the culmination of a four-year planning process that began with a series of community "visioning conferences" during the 1991-92 school year.


Our Approach

ACLC engages students (we call them learners) through a collaborative, project-based approach to learning and a democratic model that champions student voice and leadership.
