Educating the Leaders of Tomorrow

Robotics Team Presentation

A Small, Vibrant School

Serving grades 6-12, ACLC fosters both self-direction and a collaborative spirit among its 360 middle and high school students. There are 50 to 60 students per grade and class sizes are small, ranging from 25 to 30 in core classes.

Along with rigorous, project-based core classes and innovative art and science electives, ACLC learners have important self-directed time--called Project Periods--spent in a large, learner-friendly, computer-equipped space called The Center.
