Welcome

The Alternative Learning Center (TALC) is a homeschooling community and cooperative based in Columbia County, New York. Our mission is to provide a place where homeschooling families meet to support each other and learn together in an inclusive environment.

Our membership includes approximately 20-30 families from Columbia, Berkshire, Greene, Ulster, Rensselaer, and surrounding counties. We meet once a week at the facility we rent, which has a gym, classrooms, a kitchen, playing fields, tennis courts, a playroom for toddlers, and an outdoor playground. The facility is wheelchair accessible. Our schedule is comprised of an autumn season and a spring season, each running approximately 13 weeks.

TALC is currently accepting new members. Join our Facebook page to keep up with the latest news.
