ALRI has Rebranded to Encore Learning
At our June 2012 annual meeting, members voted to ratify the Board decision to change our name from Arlington Learning in Retirement Institute to Encore Learning. As part of the transition, this website will continue to be accessible under the current address until our new website is up and running.

On December 21st, 2012, the Encore Learning office moved from its location in Clarendon to the Syphax Education Center located at 2110 Washington Boulevard (Sequoia Building #2). The move was part of the co-location of Arlington Public Schools (APS) offices, classrooms, staff and parent support facilities from the Syphax and Clarendon Education Center (CEC) buildings. The Encore Learning office is now open in its new location. The Encore Learning telephone number has remained the same – 703-228-2144.
