These questions should be thought about and discussed as a family, but are to be answered by the student (a parent can help answer as needed).
An ALC is an environment where students of every age are free to direct their own learning and activities, yet this freedom comes with responsibilities. I understand that I am expected to:
1) Treat others with respect (whether student, volunteer, staff or parent), 2) Behave appropriately for a shared space such that I don't interfere or disrupt others' learning activities, 3) Participate in making, honoring, and enforcing rules and structures of the community, 4) Help solve conflicts when they arise, 5) Respect and take care of our learning environment, and 6) Stay within our outdoor and indoor boundaries.
Please feel free to attach any examples of your work you'd like to share with us. (max 10)
I understand that the ALC provides a real-world learning environment for students to develop self-direction, self-motivation and self-knowledge and as such never requires students to attend specific classes or produce specific work. The school will support student's requests for learning, but does not direct learning activities according to any curriculum. The facilitators or school community may make certain activities mandatory for the smooth operation of the school. Currently these are: morning meetings, end of day meetings, lunch, clean-up, fire drills, and conflict resolution meetings. Beyond these, the choices are up to each child.
Atlas ALC offers a sibling discount of 15% off for the second child attending and 20% off for the third child attending.
Upon completion of your application please pay the one time fee for your family.
