Our Curriculum

LEARN teachers use the rigorous Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. Students engage in four core subjects – English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies – as well as enrichment courses in technology, visual and performing arts, world languages, and physical education and more.

Student Support Services

LEARN believes a critical measure of our performance is the confidence and character we develop in every scholar. We have designed programs and services that supports scholars of every academic level to ensure that each scholar will be prepared for higher education learning.

Enrichment

LEARN schools provide students with weekly enrichment classes which expand core learning and enrich college readiness. Depending on the campus, LEARN students experience classes including Art, Music, Technology, Spanish, Dance, Photography and Tumbling. Please visit the school pages to find out more!

High School Placement

To fulfill our mission to prepare our students for college, we ensure that every graduating 8th grader enrolls in a college preparatory high school. LEARN schools have a full-time High School Placement Counselor to introduce students and families to public and private high school options and to guide them through the process of applying and securing financial aid, if needed.
