I love American Leadership Academy because of the many things you can be involved in. All four years of high school, I was able to be involved in a competitive show choir, dance company, student government, national honors society, key club, college course classes and much more. In another school, you wouldn't get that opportunity because of the size of the school.
The choir program at ALA has helped me learn so much and has given me many opportunities to develop my talents. In the competitive show choir, we travel across the United States to compete and it is very educational and a fun aspect to my high school career.
ALA has a concurrent enrollment program through Utah Valley University. This allows students to get college credit while in high school which saves a lot of money. You can even graduate high school with your associate's degree done! This has pushed me to be responsible and to learn about what I want to study more in college. I love ALA.

American Leadership Academy is a great school to attend! The school works very well with Concurrent Enrollment courses, and gears everything towards college classes. The school is small but close knit, allowing for many opportunities to participate and succeed in a variety of classes, clubs, or activities. Each class is small, and centered on the individual students. Teachers are amazing, and helpful!
American Leadership Academy is an excellent charter school in Spanish Fork, Utah. Every teacher pushed me to reach success and helped me realize my potential. There is a strong emphasis on building up the student body. I had very personal interactions with each teacher and very positive experiences socially, as no amount of disrespect or vulgarity is tolerated. The only thing I would say, is sometimes the high standards held can bombard those whose levels of competency are lower due to extenuating circumstances such as learning disabilities, abuse, or poverty.
