Based in Orlando, Florida, ALS operates and manages 19 high school dropout prevention and recovery programs (DPRPs) in Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia. ALS provides an alternative learning environment for nearly 6,000 students who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out.
ALS significantly improves students’ academic performance. During just their first year with ALS, students have achieved an average improvement of three grade levels in reading skills and a nearly 60% increase in total school credits earned. ALS also helps public schools improve their overall graduation rates.
