About Us

The general educational programs of Ann Arbor Learning Community are designed to produce life-long independent learners.

A safe and nurturing environment supports the social and emotional development of children, which is fundamental for effective learning.

Our learning community -- made up of students, teachers, staff, strategic partners and families working together -- affirms and supports a variety of learning styles and believes that students require multiple opportunities to demonstrate their mastery of concepts.

By Michigan State Law, each public charter school operates as their own school district. The Ann Arbor Learning Community is run by a Board of Directors.
