Academic Learning Programs

What We Do

We work with youth in Salem and Gloucester to improve their academic performance, to teach them to problem-solve, to become more literate in English and computers, to explore their creativity, to flourish within a diverse population, and to develop workplace skills.

We are successful if our students graduate from high school as self-confident, self-sufficient and productive members of their community.

Mission and Goal

The mission of the Academic Learning programs is to encourage students to become active learners and to provide the support, advocacy, skills and tools necessary for them to succeed, both socially and academically, in school and persist in education beyond high school.

Our goal is to encourage students to find their passion and help them develop the emotional and cognitive skills to achieve it.


The Academic Learning Center is a drop-in program, so students come and go at their own leisure. We can not monitor the students. However, parents are more than welcome to call 978-740-6667 ext. 118 to see if the student is present. Please be sure to check the calendar on this website for upcoming activities and changes in the schedule.

Students are required to follow the rules/expectations at LEAP for Education. If a student refuses to follow the rules, the student will be asked to leave. Parents will be contacted if this is the case. If this is an on-going issue with the student, then a parent meeting will need to be scheduled before the student can return to the ALC.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call 978-740-6667 ext. 118.
