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.
  • Provides flexible student schedules for full- and part-time students to meet their individual needs.
