Rochester Alternative Learning Center

About Us

Rochester ALC

“We believe all individuals can achieve their personal best when barriers are removed, opportunities are made equitably accessible, and appropriate challenges are provided.

August 26, 2013 Marked the grand opening of the new Rochester Alternative Learning Center in South East Rochester. The 55,000 square foot former furniture showroom was gutted and repurposed, creating an environment with few walls and corridors. The open spaces are crucial in maintaining an atmosphere supportive of learning beyond traditional classrooms. Instead of being defined by conventional layouts, the design team for the ALC focused on their most important users—the students—and outlined the school’s components around how to best adapt to each student’s learning level, instead of the reverse. The grand opening of the ALC was symbol of more than a new educational building for the district—it represented a wholly innovative method of learning and communication.
