ALC Values


Students at ALC…

Obtain a Character-Based Education

Students are encouraged to develop Christian-based morals at ALC and are taught The Purpose Road Philosophy. Additionally, students must complete courses in Leadership before graduating from ALC.

Participate in Service Learning

Students are provided with multiple volunteer opportunities and can choose to participate in our Leadership Education Program to further their dedication to serving others.

Work for Their Education

ALC is one of seven work-study colleges in the nation. All full-time students at ALC work at least 10 hours a week to offset the cost of their education. Jobs in our Student Work Program range from grounds and janitorial duties to office positions and teaching assistants.

Don’t Pay Tuition

All students in the 108-county service area do not pay any out-of-pocket costs for tuition while attending ALC through the Appalachian Leaders College Scholarship. This money is provided through the generous donations of people across the country.

Graduate Debt-Free

Students from our Service Area pay no out-of-pocket tuition. For the past several years, ALC has consistently ranked as the Top College for Graduating Students with the Least Amount of Debt, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Receive Financial Assistance for Graduate School

Through the Caney Scholars Program, students who graduate from ALC and plan to pursue advanced degrees can receive financial support for their educational endeavors. Students attending the University of Kentucky also have the option of living in ALC’s Caney Cottage, a dormitory facility located in Lexington, rent and utility free.
