ALCS Response

Everything we do at ALCS, we strive to do with Godly wisdom and with excellence.  As we are setting our feet on this new and undiscovered path, we find ourselves seeking God more and more — we need His wisdom as we prepare to best serve our students and you, our parents. Proverbs 24:3 says, “Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established.”  

We are building our school in a new way and we are seeking the Lord’s wisdom as we lay each brick. Please know that as we move forward we will be transparent with you, communicating real and accurate information as we have it via email (our primary tool for communication) and we will also post updates on our Facebook page and our website.

Class Structure Moving Forward: We have determined that Google Classroom best fits our needs. We will have Google Classrooms for all classes, K-12. Google Classrooms will look different based on department (elementary vs MS/HS), and based on teacher/class need.
 
We are working with our accrediting organization, Association of Christian Schools International, to ascertain that our plan for delivering instruction to students at home meets their standards. The reason for this is to ensure we maintain the standards for quality instruction and to remain eligible for a host of valuable educational programs. A diploma from an accredited school like ALCS is essential for our high school graduates who plan to further their education.

4th Quarter: We will continue to follow the directives of our governmental authorities and work to deliver instruction at home during these weeks while we are prohibited from allowing students to attend school in the building. At this time, the latest emergency order from Governor Evers extends the school closure for the duration of the public health emergency.
