Ko is the middle child of three children. He was born and raised in Iowa City, Iowa. Ko's father, Cheukman Sam Ko, was a Chinese American born in Hong Kong, who died of liver cancer when Alex was 11 years old. He was a professional gaffer in the film industry in Hong Kong who later became an Entrepreneur after relocating to the United States in 1992. His mother, Tammie Cumming, was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and raised in Deland, Florida. At the age of 13, Ko and his family relocated to New York City to perform the title role of Billy in "Billy Elliot the Musical" on Broadway. Ko said that his household is influenced heavily by the Chinese culture.
Ko won National and Regional Dance and Gymnastics Championship titles since the age of 5-years old. He was the youngest student admitted to The University of Iowa Department of Dance, where he has earned college credit and has a 4.0 GPA. He was also awarded full scholarships to Steps on Broadway and the Joffrey Ballet School.
After attending Ernest Horn Elementary School, Ko was accepted to The University of Iowa in Iowa City under Iowa's Talented and Gifted law and dual-enrolled in the Iowa City Home School Assistance Program. When Ko landed the title role in the Broadway hit Billy Elliot the Musical as the first replacement Billy for the original Tony-Award winning cast member, Kiril Kulish, he relocated to New York City from Iowa with his family. Alex made his Broadway debut on October 6, 2009 and made his final performance as Billy on 15 May 2011.
