Our educational philosophy is based on the need for English language learners to develop advanced academic literacy and use academic English in action-oriented situations. Students will become equipped with the necessary twenty-first century skills that will offer a broad amount of post-secondary learning, employment, and personal growth opportunities. It is our goal that all students in  ALP will achieve this power through mastery of the English language. ALP contains the Intensive English Academy for students who are in the initial stages of acquiring English and the Academic English Program for students who are in advanced stages of their English development.
