ALA is committed to preparing English language learners for life after ALA. One way of doing this is the ALA College Fair. ALA is partnered with several colleges and universities throughout America. This allows ALA’s international English language learners to transition from ALA into institutions of higher education, to pursue their career goals and aspirations. ALA is now partnered with 21 colleges and universities that include Salem College, Greensboro College, ECPI, and Full Sail University among lots of others; with degrees that range from the medical industry to media arts and plenty of others.
ALA’s college fair, held two or three times a year, affords English language learners the opportunity to meet with representatives from ALA’s partner schools and find out more about the programs of studies offered. English as a Second language learners can get questions answered about admission requirements (ALA certifications, ILETS scores, TOEFL scores, etc.). ALA English language learner students can get a feel for the various academic programs that the partner schools offer and what ALA students can bring to the various partner colleges and universities to prepare for their lives after ALA and college.
