Last Friday, March 9th, was the 4th annual ALA Welcome Reception! We celebrated the 100 students who were selected as members of the fourth class of Abbott Lawrence Academy. It is hard to believe our little school that started with 92 students in year one is now adding its fourth class and will be a full 9-12 experience.
