Academic Link Outreach (ALO) is an academic non-profit, 501(c)(3) operating for educational and charitable purposes. ALO acts as a voice to educate the public about the need for additional beyond-the-school day academic support for higher acheivement of students.
ALO programs support students, parents, and schools to ensure students are high school ready prior to entering 9th grade; thrive during high school; and are prepared for college and the workforce. It is not just providing students the opportunity to learn; but also, giving them, the needed support to be accountable and responsible to given expectations. That is equity! This helps close the existing educational gap among BIPOC, low income, foster, and homeless children – any child in need! Student success must be guaranteed!
Approximately 80,700 Washington State students enter 9th grade each year.
