Foley, MN 56329
The Foley Alternative Learning Center has an enrollment of 15-20 full and part-time students, ages 16-21 in grades 10-12. The daily schedule consists of five 60 minute class periods meeting five days per week, 8:05am - 2:50pm (1 of the 5 periods is teacher prep. This prep period varies from trimester to trimester). Students may be scheduled in as many as 4 classes per day at the ALC and are encouraged to enroll in classes in the mainstream High School as well. Attendence is required every day on a full-time basis. Students must be a minimum of 16 years old to attend the Foley Alternative program and meet other enrollment requirements. Credits can be earned via traditional classroom instruction or through computer-based Independent Study. Independent Study gives the student the opportunity to "recover" deficient credits needed toward graduation in addition to the credits earned during scheduled ALC periods.
