Our School

Philly ALC School is a supportive environment where young people explore and self-direct their learning through cycles of intention, reflection and inspiration.  Our model provides young people from ages 5-18 a space to delve into their passions, and learn deeply, without the confining curriculum and limiting structure of standardized education. Instead of the mandated classes found in a traditional school, students, staff and parents collaborate to provide “offerings” that support student interests. The model focuses on building community to support learning through doing. Philly ALC is a place where kids can be themselves, surrounded by a caring community that supports their individual growth and well being.

We offer Full and Part Time Options, as well as sliding scale tuition.
