“My son enjoyed his time in Arizona with his friends, teachers, and all the cultural and sporting events at ALA so much that he decided to finish his schooling at ALA in Arizona. The school and his teachers made it possible that he could take all the AP courses which he needed for the recognition of his high school diploma as a German Abitur. On the day of his graduation his biggest dream came true.”

–Martina, ALA Alumni Parent from Munich, Germany
