Will your campus offer specials?
As a Core Knowledge and classically- based school, we believe that students deserve access to a broad base of knowledge to become well-rounded members of their community. To this end, we are committed to offering music, art, and P.E. each week for students in grades K-6.
Will this campus offer the same great programs that we are accustomed to with ALA?
Yes, as part of the “best educational experience”, we are committed to implementing the same curriculum as the current campuses.

Yes, the same dress and appearance standards apply at all ALA schools. Red, white, blue and gray collared shirts are the standard.
How much homework will students have?
Our mission is to “provide the best educational experience”, which includes academic rigor. But, we also believe that students should be allowed time to pursue extra-curricular opportunities and hobbies, including family time. We don’t believe in busy work—worksheets are replaced by relevant literacy building activities like reading and writing. The majority of student work will be done in class.
