Learning Works


Our school focuses on what works: engaging students through Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. We lead with relationships, offer rigor and build relevance into the curriculum.

We believe all Youth Need a High School Diploma.  Learning Works Charter School focuses on what works: engaging students through Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. We lead with relationships, offer rigor and build relevance into the curriculum.

Our mission is to provide a personalized, rigorous academic program and relevant life skills to traditionally underserved, high-risk students in grades 9-12 who have withdrawn or are in danger of withdrawing from mainstream education without attaining a high school diploma. Our school addresses the needs of our community by offering a program to give disengaged students an educational choice designed to meet their specific needs, distinct from the traditional programs that have not served them well.  Our model combines academic intervention and support,  and recognizes our population’s need for embedded wrap around, social support services.

A voluntary, independent study-based charter school fits the need for a “fresh start.”  Unlike many school district alternative programs, we have a dedicated, stand-alone facility separate from other public schools that is centrally located within the local community.  LW’s safe and professional learning center distinctly differs in appearance and feel from traditional schools.

Learning Works provides:

  • Enrollment and retention support for students who want to catch up on credits.
  • A high school diploma for students who are close to graduating.
  • Wrap around services to help students overcome many of the life challenges that are barriers to attending school and completing high school.
  • Assistance to students attaining their first job and a plan to progress in the workforce.
  • Support to students who have graduated to enroll in further education or/and training.
  • Community and school district resources for students and their families.
