How many parents? Who, other than you, is an active parent? Siblings? What's their family unit look like?
These questions are to be answered by the student. (It's fine for the parent to type or enter the information for younger students, but the answers should come from them.)
We have all prospective students visit for a week as a key part of our enrollment process.
ALC Philosophy Agreement *
I understand that the ALC provides a real-world learning environment for people to develop self-direction, self-motivation and self-knowledge and as such never requires students to attend specific classes or produce specific work.
As a community, we will collectively support people's requests for learning, but will not direct learning activities according to any curriculum or imposed judgements on what is valuable for another person to learn.
In order to take responsibility for the community and to engage intentionally, some basic activities are required for anyone in the Branches program. Currently, these are: Morning/Afternoon meetings (15 min each), Set-the-Week meeting (weekly, 20 min), Change-Up meeting (weekly, 30 min), Clean up (daily, 15 min), and cooperation with Culture Circles in which participation is requested. Beyond these community-related commitments, no other activities will be mandatory.
