Academies of Loudoun Student Parking

Parking facilities are provided at the Academies of Loudoun as a convenience to 11th and 12th grade students who drive to school.  The Academies of Loudoun has a limited number of parking spots (275 each day) available for students.  Permits will be issued via a lottery system with 12th grade students having priority.  Parking permit fees are $100 per year (ACL Parking Only) or $200 per year (Home High School and ACL Parking).  Please note that parking permits at the Academies are separate from parking permits at home schools. If students intend to drive to both locations, they must apply for permits at both schools.
