Vocational Learning

De was able to join us COVID style. De joined Heather's Vocational Class on a sunny day in September. Staff have been working hard to take advantage of the weather to provide students with a variety of opportunities they normally would not be able to due to COVID.


Vocational Communication classes are offered to all ALC students. Students who are working while taking the class are eligible to earn additional work credit. Vocational Communications class covers a wide array of job related topics and provides students an opportunity to explore what they want to accomplish after high school.
