Home of the Falcons

Welcome to ALA Virtual K - 12, home of the Falcons. We are proud to offer Virtual education to students in the state of Arizona, with tuition-free, flexible learning options including online, hybrid or in person learning centers. Students enrolled at ALA-Virtual are able to participate in athletics, extracurricular activities, and graduation ceremonies. ALA-V courses are NCAA and Cognia accredited. Together with the family, we will offer the best educational experience to as many students as possible in a moral and wholesome environment.


Fully Online

The majority of ALA-Virtual’s courses are taught in an asynchronous way. This means that K-12 grade students who choose to receive all of their instruction virtually will benefit from a flexible class schedule, as they can sign in and conduct their learning at any time of day. Every ALA-Virtual course has a dedicated teacher who offers specific Office Hours where students can discuss questions or needs directly with the teacher. K-12 grade students enrolled full-time in ALA-Virtual still have access to participate in athletics, clubs, graduation, and extracurricular activities.
