AltSchool offers a whole-child, personalized education to prepare students for their future by developing self-awareness, nurturing their innate capabilities, and fostering collaboration skills.
Our educators engage students by involving them in their own learning and incorporating project-based learning to help students develop initiative and take responsibility for their education.
Students learn and are assessed on non-academic life skills with the same level of rigor as core academic knowledge.
We are accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year.
Please submit an application by December 31, 2016 to receive an admissions decision by mid-March 2017.

At AltSchool, we believe a whole-child, personalized education supports each student as an individual learner. Our educational approach is:
- Child-centered: A focus on student agency and reflection fosters a growth mindset and a culture of iteration, which allows students to take ownership over their own learning.
- Purposeful and motivating: An inquiry-driven and real-world inspired learning cycle allows students to construct knowledge and acquire skills around problems and projects that are personally meaningful.
- Goal driven: Ongoing documentation and assessment set the milestone benchmarks from which to discuss growth, gaps, and goal setting.
- Flexible: Student leveling, pacing, and grouping affords each student both collectively-shared and individualized learning experiences.
