ALP – Accelerated learning program homepage

Welcome to the website for the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) at the Community College of Baltimore County. ALP is a co-requisite model for developmental writing that began as a faculty initiative in 2007. Since that time, ALP has consistently produced dramatic improvements in student success rates and has demonstrated that it can be scaled up. And the success of ALP is not limited to CCBC. Numerous schools around the country have adopted/adapted ALP, and five states have launched wide-scale ALP adoptions: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, and Virginia.Our website offers information for those interested in knowing more about the program, wanting some help with starting an ALP initiative at their school, or looking for classroom materials for ALP classes. Explore the site and contact us if you have questions or would like to know more about our consultation services. Thanks for your interest in ALP.
