What We Do

At the Adult Learning Center (ALC), we believe that age is not a barrier to education and that adult students bring with them a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and experience that should be honored and valued in their classes. Likewise, we believe that our teachers bring with them equally unique talents and perspectives, which should be recognized and nurtured. In this vein, we internally model the environment that we seek to create for our students, maintaining a collaborative atmosphere for teachers and staff to support and nurture their growth as creative practitioners. They, in turn, carry this sensibility into the classroom and build students’ abilities through high quality, rigorous and thoughtful instruction. Additionally, our teachers carry this model out into the field in the ALC’s special events and partner projects.
