Enrichment classes

Enrichment classes are experiential classes.  

Independent Study & Credit Recovery & Work-Based Learning

Independent Study is an option for students 16 years and older who would like to design their course of study with the help of a teacher.  Credit Recovery is an option for students who have failed a class previously at one of the "home" high schools in the District.  Work-based Learning (WBL) is for those students 16 years or older who work an average of 10 hours per week outside of the school day.  Students who are interested in more information about WBL should meet with the ALC's WBL teacher to find out more.

Post-Secondary Enrollment Options

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level courses. With traditional PSEO, these courses are generally offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Postsecondary institutions are not allowed to charge PSEO students for tuition, textbooks or support services. Students may be charged for equipment that becomes their property when the course or program is completed. Learn more about available post-secondary enrollment options >
