Enroll In The Learning Center

The W.G. Pearson Learning Center is designed to be safe, welcoming and supportive communities for young people, 6th grade through 12th grade, to access while completing their online learning. Programs will operate from during school hours Monday-Thursday and students will be expected to attend every day for the full day. We will ensure the learning center is a safe environment by requiring masks, daily screenings, and increased cleaning frequency throughout the building. We ensure it is a supportive environment to learn by also providing space to learn outdoors, meals and snacks, and activities and experiences which increase social and emotional capacity. Transportation is now available to the learning center.
