Our Vision

ALL students (grades K-12) are more academically accountable, competent, and personally fulfilled as they progress through these crucial years.

Our Mission

ALO develops and distributes community based, sustainable systems (programs and materials) that provide additional beyond-the-school-day academic support. Our programs and materials focus on academics, building relationships, and the positive protective factors that enable students to meet or exceed state standards, graduate from high school, and be better prepared for the workforce or college. Our current mission is to publish a comprehensive manual to guarantee student academic success. So other middle schools will have access to the Academic Success Program.

Our Goals

Academic Link Outreach (ALO) acts as a voice to educate the public about the need to provide beyond-the-school-day academic support for struggling students mainly BIPOC, low income, foster and homeless. Our goal is equity!
