Alan Fluckiger grew up in New Jersey. He studied at St. John Fischer College, Rochester, NY, and BYU where he met his wife. They raised their family in New York for ten years, then a business opportunity took them to Idaho. Little did they know they would also join other homeschool parents to become founders of a home school resource, American Heritage Academy. For 15 years, this non-profit, private school has provided teaching support to home schooling parents. Alan is currently the CEO of EnsignEd, which provides live, online access to the quality teachers and classes of the Academy for homeschooling families worldwide. A private pilot by hobby, Alan approaches everything he does with the same precision it takes to fly a plane. He has a great love for teaching and because his character demands that he is disciplined, he is well-read, well-researched, and well-prepared for everything he teaches. Alan served a mission to Japan. He has also served as elder’s quorum president, bishop, gospel doctrine teacher, ward choir director, and scout leader.
