Area Learning Centers (ALCs) help students achieve their educational and career goals in a non-traditional learning environment. The three locations offer comprehensive and rigorous high school curriculum delivered within a personalized, flexible and nurturing environment. Students receive assistance in meeting graduation requirements and have opportunities to gain vocational skills and work experience.







We serve students in grades 9 to 12+ attending full time, part-time and for specific credit recovery.

The number of students indicated in this report reflect a duplicated headcount, meaning that if a student un-enrolls and re-enrolls during the same school year, they are counted twice. We represent the data this way because it more accurately represents the staff time, funding and resources required to run our programs.

Metro Heights student artwork featured in coffee shop gallery

On May 8, students from Metro Heights Academy attended a community event in which their artwork was on display at Community Grounds in Columbia Heights. Taking inspiration from our arts integration elementary school, Metro Heights used art projects to inspire students to build relationships between their inner and outer worlds, improve communication skills, and discover an appropriate emotional release.
