Alternative Learning Opportunities Program
The Alternative Learning Opportunities Program (ALOP) is designed for high school students who are at risk of academic failure, retention, or are having difficulty with school attendance. This program provides students with an alternative learning environment which includes individualized instruction, small class size, and counseling sessions.
The high school learning program focuses on supporting the Illinois Learning Standards and preparation for the G.E.D. exam. All students are instructed in the core subjects of mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies. In addition to academic instruction, students also work with staff on transition planning. Students will become familiar with resources available for career development and college planning. Upon completion of the ALOP program, students will register for the G.E.D. exam.
Referrals to the ALOP program are made by the student’s home school. Referral forms can be accessed under Referral Packet at the left side of this page. Before completing and submitting the Referral forms, please contact the ALOP Program Coordinator at 630-495-6080 to discuss eligibility.
