Vision and Mission

Our Vision

ALL students are high school ready prior to entering ninth grade. ALL students (grades K-12) are more academically accountable, competitive, and personally fulfilled as they progress through these crucial years.

Our Mission

ALO develops and distributes community based, sustainable systems (programs and materials) that provide additional beyond-the-school-day academic support. Our programs and materials focus on academics, building relationships, and the positive protective factors that enable students to meet or exceed state standards, graduate from high school, and be better prepared for the workforce or college.

Our Goals
