The Learning Center is an open enrollment program. We offer new student orientations every week.

Any student wishing to enroll with The Learning Center must first make an appointment with the Connection Center to find out if we are the best program for your student’s needs.

Program Model

The Learning Center provides a blend of instruction methods including

  • In Person Small Group Classes. We have a variety of small group classes available for students to come to. Group sizes are kept to small numbers so each student can have more individualized support from their teachers.
  • Project Based Learning, students may also choose to work on individual group projects that are designed to meet the student’s credit needs while catering to the students interests.
  • Online Instruction, Online instruction uses a platform called Edgenuity. Edgenuity is a web-based program that allows students to sign-in and continue their coursework from home or another desired location. This allows students flexibility in reaching their educational goals in addition to the ability to recover credits faster.
