our purpose

The Alternative Learning Center (ALC) provides a temporary academic environment for students to work on classroom credits while they work to transition back to a full day at their traditional academic building. Most students will still attend their traditional academic building for a portion of their school day, but a small portion of students may attend the ALC only for various reasons. Fifth year seniors may also attend the ALC only in order to complete their graduation requirements.

The A.L.C. will follow the East Noble School Corporation yearly calendar. Corporation- called weather delays and closings will be followed during the year, as will adaptations to the calendar.

*If a three-hour delay is called, the morning session will not meet and the afternoon session will meet at the normal time.


The ALC uses Edgenuity, an online curriculum software, for the coursework. Each trimester students are expected to earn a minimum of two or three credits depending on their program hours and achieve a minimum 70% mastery on all course content.

Students not earning academic credit during a trimester may return on a probationary status. A second consecutive term without academic achievement may result in dismissal from the program.


A student will be tardy if they arrive during the first ten minutes of their ALC class start time, and a student will be considered absent from each subsequent period they arrive more than ten minutes late to.

For all attendance communication, please contact the Middle School or High School attendance offices accordingly.
