ALA football is one of the finest such programs among Christian boarding schools in the country, and a very uncommon element of a therapeutic boarding school, but one that we feel helps provide a unique therapeutic platform.
ALA competes with some of the best 8- and 11-man public and private school football teams in the area. Football gives our students a chance to compete at a high level and helps provide students with ongoing physical training to allow them to move on to college sports or to assimilate back into sports in their own high school, if that is the student’s athletic goal.
Our motto of “Care, Trust, Serve” also plays an important role to our students on and off the football field. Students learn the principles of football that also apply to life. Discipline, determination, and overcoming adversity is the foundation of being successful in life after football. Student athletes are provided with the best facilities, coaches and training camps to be successful during the season, while also building positive social interactions with fellow teammates.
