Hello UALC Jaguars!

My name is Mark McLoughlin, and I am the proud Program Administrator of the Utica Alternative Learning Center.  This is the start of my thirteenth year in UCS and look forward, along with our great staff to working with our community to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students.

Our staff has been busy getting ready and making plans for student success.  UALC is a school where students are safe and faculty care for each student as they assist them with their academic goals.

Please contact me if you have any questions or set up an appointment to meet me in person. 

2022-23 promises to be a great year.
