Alta Loma Christian School
Dually accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Alta Loma Christian School (ALCS) has been touching hearts and training minds since 1980. The Preschool through 8th Grade program emphasizes academic excellence and rigor in the context of a distinctly Biblical, Christian worldview. Highly-qualified professional educators guide students as they grow intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically in a safe atmosphere of love and educational discovery.
ALCS’ computer science, computer literacy, and technology curriculum empowers students to engage in standards-based EdTech integration. Computer coding is taught at all grade levels and is a leading-edge academic effort designed to strategically equip students with 21st century skills. This helps prepare all students for the realities and challenges they will face in the future, assisting them to be competitively equipped for high school, college, and career—particularly for opportunities in STEM-related fields—while simultaneously helping them become all that God has designed them to be.
The 1:1 iPad® program provides each student in grades 6-8 with an iPad® for selected textbooks and as a tool for creativity, collaboration, communication, problem-solving, and research, continually developing higher-level thinking skills.
In Fall 2016, ALCS launches its new Quest International Space Station Program—a STEM program focusing on space science and engineering, and robotics—partnering with the Quest Institute, AMSE Institute, Microsoft®, NASA, and others to further engage and excite student exploration. The program is part of the new Eagle Center for Creativity and Innovation at ALCS, developing student involvement in arts and sciences.
In recent years, ALCS has received national recognition and distinction for the reading achievement of its students, and students have been further honored at the regional and national level for academic and community achievement.
ALCS’ objective is to develop students with 21st century skills, while simultaneously infusing in them an authentic walk with Jesus, reflective of the unstoppable and steadfast faith of 1st century Christ-followers.
21st century skills. 1st century faith.®
