Together we are making a difference in the lives of children

ALC is designed to help students experience academic growth, encourage self esteem, and develop skills needed for success.

About Us

Our Team


Teachers make the difference!

Certified teachers in each school are hired to work with children in reading and/or math.  By having a tutor from your school, children receive personalized services based on their individual needs as determined by the classroom teachers and communicated to the tutor. By using certified teachers within the schools, our model is unique, and ALC is confident that it works well.

Our History


Academic Learning Center was establish in 1996 in the First Missionary Baptist Church in the Logan Community in Concord. In 2001, we partnered with the Cabarrus County and Kannapolis City School Systems, and United Way, to develop the current model for delivering tutoring services. This school year, ALC is partnering with 12 elementary schools to provide tutoring on site at each of these schools, serving approximately 550 students.  

Our Mission


The Academic Learning Center's goal is to assist children, through the school and teachers, toward improving their academic performance.  ALC students strive for higher attendance and are more confident in their ability to participate in regular classroom lessons.  Academic Learning Center is a separate organization from the school system and depends on private funding from foundations, businesses and individuals to run its program.  Every dollar spent is carefully allocated to make the best use of available money.  .
