MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
On behalf of the teaching staff, I welcome you to the St. Albert Adult Learning Centre website. We are thrilled to bring you up-to-date news about many of the events that happen in our school.
We are very proud that for many years, St. Albert has assisted adult learners to fulfill their dream of obtaining a high school diploma. This can be realized through compulsory and elective courses, co-operative learning opportunities, e-learning and correspondence courses.
We also offer other programs to help adult learners achieve other lifelong goals. Literacy Basic Skills (LBS), and the Personal Support Worker (PSW) program are among some of the programs that might interest our adult community.
As you peruse this site, you will notice that St. Albert Adult Learning Centre continues to build a strong tradition of academic excellence for the adult learner.
Our goal is to help each student succeed. We strive to prepare our adult learners for success in today’s workplace.
We take our motto seriously: “Success for each, a place for all”. Our teaching staff and administrative personnel will make every effort to ensure that your experiences at St. Albert are both fruitful and rewarding.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF ST. ALBERT ALC
St. Albert Adult Learning Centre opened its doors in the fall of 1992.
St. Albert was established to provide adults with an alternative setting\ to the usual school atmosphere. It is based on the individual’s needs and each student has an individual path he/she follows. Flexibility of time and program allows for greater success than a traditional classroom setting.
The approach to adult education was and continues to be two-fold:
- To identify and meet the academic needs of adults returning to school
- To provide on-site and off-site community supports and services to manage the challenges of returning to school.
St. Albert is a unique and thriving educational institution. We have produced literally thousands of graduates. Those thousands of graduates have successfully entered post-secondary education, found employment, and improved their lives. This is indicative of our school’s relevancy and ability to adapt to the changes in our educational system as well as the exceptional teachers and staff who have kept the true spirit of St. Albert alive.
