“Education is a Wonderful Thing when you Experience Success.”
The Oconto Falls Alternative Learning Site is dedicated to working with students, families, the school district and the community to ensure that all students have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma. Earning a high school diploma is one of the first steps toward developing a person’s potential to lead a productive, satisfying life. To accomplish this, students will engage in challenging and purposeful learning that blends their experiences with knowledge and real world application in preparation for adult roles.
“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”

The Oconto Falls Alternative Learning Site opened its doors on December 14, 1998. The FALS is located in the old Cook Library in the city of Oconto Falls. The interior was renovated by former students and is now a large open classroom. The FALS is fully equipped with the latest technology allowing student every accommodation to achieve their high school diploma. The typical FALS student is credit deficient yet still desires to achieve a diploma. Students work on a self-paced curriculum specifically designed to meet their individual learning style. The long list of FALS graduates demonstrates a need for this service in the quest for academic success.
