Seat Based Information

The Detroit Lakes Area Learning Center Seat based Program serves area youth in grades 9 - 12. Our purpose is to provide viable educational options to students who are experiencing difficulty in their traditional system. This program has a more hands on/experiential approach, smaller class sizes with a focus on social/emotional issues, career education, work experience and service learning. The seat based program is to provide students an opportunity and support to overcome educational barriers. Strong parent, student, ALC staff and community agency partnerships are utilized to provide appropriate interventions. Students who are not making progress on barriers will be dismissed from the program and referred back to their residential high school or independent study program.
