ALA is a place that lifts the ceiling on learning for all members of the educational community, including students, teachers and families. We provide 21st-century opportunities within a caring and open community and foster a depth of thinking, problem-solving, creative design and real-world applications as students develop deep content knowledge and cutting-edge learning skills to prepare them for any and all futures they can envision. ALA is also a professional development school in partnership with Trinity University. Trinity education faculty members assigned to the school, in partnership with the school leadership team and SAISD curriculum leaders, facilitate the curriculum design.
