Welcome to Moorhead Alternative Learning Center (formerly Red River Area Learning Center). The ALC has been partnering with participating schools since 1992, to ensure that a continuum of programs and services are available to meet the unique needs of K-12 students at-risk in the learning process.
The Moorhead Alternative Learning Center is located at the Vista Center for Education in south Moorhead. Although the Moorhead Alternative Learning Center at Vista Center for Education is also home to separate site programs for middle and high school students, these are just two programs in a comprehensive range of options that the ALC provides.
ALC services are designed to:
Intervene with the youngest students through Targeted Services
Intervene with students at risk of dropping out of high school
Provide students who have already dropped out a way to come back
Provide specialized options not typically available in traditional school settings
