The Alternative Learning Center (ALC) provides an alternative setting and style of learning for sixth through twelfth grade students who have been removed from school on a long term suspension. Students are referred to the ALC following a Committee on Conduct Hearing resulting in a long-term suspension. Some students who have experienced success in the Alternative Learning Center may appeal to the Francis Howell School District Superintendent of schools to remain at the ALC through graduation.

ALC students spend three hours each day receiving individualized computer based instruction in a classroom located at Francis Howell Union High School.

Daily Schedule
7:00- 10:00 AM Session

The ALC core curriculum is aligned with the district's high school graduation requirements with some elective courses available. Courses in the ALC are taken on the computer using the Edmentum Online Learning System.  This computer based program provides core curriculum and assessment tools to match skill levels of all students, whether on a developmental, remedial, or enhanced learning track. A maximum of 3.5 high school credits may be earned each semester. Students who are referred to the ALC from Francis Howell Union High School may receive up to 4 credits.
