The Learning Center! is a North Carolina Charter School
The Learning Center!, which operated for fourteen years as
a private school, was granted approval as a North Carolina charter school
in 1997. It was one of the state’s first charter schools, a distinction
shared by only 33 other schools statewide. Charter schools are deregulated
public schools of choice and were begun to provide educational alternatives
for parents and students and to serve as a proving ground for innovative
approaches to education. The school is governed by a board of directors who
hold monthly public meetings. An elected parent representative serves as
liaison between parents and the board, and the board encourages your attendance
and impute at meetings.
You will observe right away that The Learning Center! is different. We are
not a traditional school. Our classes are all multi-grade groupings, that
fluctuate from year to year to accommodate student needs and changes in enrollment.
Students are given individual instruction and assignments based on their
ability levels and interests. Our environment is very fluid; students have
choices about where they may work. Often you will find older students mentoring
younger ones. We work toward creating a sense of community and instilling
in our students a sense of responsibility to that community.
