American Leadership Academy wishes the Class of 2020 a very special congratulations as they start their next chapters after graduation. Seniors at ALA Queen Creek, Ironwood and San Tan Valley campuses were extremely hardworking as they perservered through the hurdles that COVID-19 presented.

Graduation Ceremonies 

Due to the Pandemic and ALA wanting to ensure safety for all staff, students and parents, virtual ceremonies were hosted for all three high schools. These virtual ceremonies beautifully highlighted the accomplishments from the students to display for all. The hard work and dedication to making these videos should not be forgotten either. Each student was asked to wear their cap and gown while taking a procession picture and tossing their cap, as well as record  a 10-15 second video of themselves. Students also submitted a senior photo collage which really added to the special day. The results were absolutely astounding. See the recordings below to view the results.
