About the School

The Academy for Language and Technology (ALT) nurtures inquiry learning, character development, and community building. Our focus is to prepare students to compete in the global economy. Students connect technology to real-world experiences via internships and they develop literacy in both Spanish and English. Ninth graders enter one of our three technology-focused programs: media communications, computer networking, or computer technology. Our school environment-built on community, leadership, and social activism-encourages our students to grow into articulate, responsible citizens.
