Welcome to Area Learning Center!

The Northfield Public Schools Area Learning Center provides a positive, safe and structured learning environment with block scheduling. We offer independent study for students who are unable to attend during normal school hours and can complete coursework with minimal teacher direction. Our Teen Parenting Program provides support, information and skill-building opportunities to expectant teens and teenage parents. With dual enrollment, students can be enrolled in the ALC and another school at the same time.
