The Learning Center was founded on the belief that every student has the ability to learn.


Over the past four years, our staff has helped 100 students improve their study habits, comprehension, and test-taking skills. As a result, these students have earned better test scores and grades, and grown in self-esteem and confidence. This confidence has led to college entry, job placement and independent living. Our young people are introduced to the life skills needed to be productive, well rounded and grounded individuals in the 21st century.  We love celebrating those victories with our students..
