About Avant-Garde Learning Alliance

Avant-Garde Learning Alliance was founded in early 2005 as a nonprofit corporation by Dr. Shirley Holloway, the former Alaska State Commissioner of Education and Early Development. Our work is fueled by the passion of our dedicated board of directors and our hard-working staff.

Children in Alaska face unique geographic, economic and cultural challenges. Avant-Garde is committed to partnering with universities and colleges, school districts, business, tribal organizations, and communities to transform education and ensure our young people have the opportunity for bright, successful futures.
