Staff Member of the Month

Congratulations to our December Staff Member of the Month....

MR. CHRIS UMFRESS!!! We are a lucky group of people to have you as part of our family here at the ALC. You are always a professional colleague who is up for teamwork, and even the occasional joke. You keep us laughing and boost our morale! Your energy is contagious, and your students as well as your colleagues are inspired by it. It is an awesome experience that our students in Monroe County benefit from such an enthusiastic and sincere teacher who has years of hands-on law enforcement experience to make learning come alive in the classroom and down the halls of our campus. You are doing an outstanding job as our Law & Public Safety instructor. Thank you Mr. Umfress...we wish you the best for the remaining year and years to come!

Our student centered education includes relevant, enhanced education preparing students for college, careers, and for the global community of life-long learners.

MISSION:

The Monroe County Advanced Learning Center (ALC) provides a safe environment while academically challenging the whole student to be successful and contribute to society.

VISION:

The ALC strives to instill the qualities of character, excellence, creativity, and service into our students as they become prepared global leaders.

BELIEF:

The ALC believes students will become productive citizens when they are challenged and mentored in academics, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.

Monroe County School District is a county school system that encompasses six site locations across one of the largest counties in North Mississippi. The Advanced Learning Center is centrally located serving each of the K-12 Attendance Centers. The ALC, as it is called by the faculty and students, is a cost effective method to enhance education by offering Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, Spanish, Art, and two vocational courses (Culinary Arts and Law and Public Safety). Aberdeen and Nettleton School District students are also served classes through a partnership the districts have designed. We are excited to serve Monroe County and are dedicated in supporting and growing the whole student.
