    The Area Learning Center of Forest Lake Area Schools is located in the heart of Forest Lake, Minnesota.  We offer a range of alternative academic programming based on the Minnesota standards.  Curriculum is designed to expose students to the knowledge, skills and experience they will need to have success in the classroom, as well to be future contributors to a global economy.  
    The vision statement for the ALC reflects the feelings and spirit of our school.  The staff at the ALC believes that all students can and will learn. We may face many challenges, we may face barriers, however through our individualized, unique delivery method of instruction and smaller class sizes, we meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students. Our staff is passionate, professional, and cares deeply about the success of our students.  We understand that this critical growth period for our students requires constant care and a certain flexibility during the journey. It is our  pleasure to welcome you to the Area Learning Center of Forest Lake Area Schools.

    New District-Wide Bullying Prevention Form Available

    In a continuing effort to prevent bullying and quickly deal with any bullying that occurs, Forest Lake Area Schools has launched a new district-wide procedure for identifying and reporting bullying behavior. If you believe that your child, or a student you know is being bullied, please fill out this Bullying Reporting Form. The form can be filled out online, but must be printed and signed before it is turned in at any school office in the district. Paper copies of the form are also available at each school building and the Community Education office. For more information about bullying prevention in Forest Lake Area Schools, visit the bullying resource page here.




    All students will graduate from high school with the skills to pursue and be successful in a high skilled career of their choosing, and kindle their innate desire for lifelong learning. 
    We, as a community, will create relationships with our students; supporting them academically, socially, and emotionally in order to celebrate their graduation from high school.  All students will be prepared for future academic and career success.
