Harwood Community Learning Center (HCLC) offers students the opportunity to tune their education to their particular learning needs. Through student driven, project based learning; students are able to meet their academic requirements in a format that best reflects their learning style. All HCLC students are required to earn a Career Exploration credit where students explore their career related strengths and interests connect to community employers, experience job shadows and eventually a structured internship. HCLC students are held to very high personal performance standards while they pursue academic material that has meaning and value to them. Students work independently in a quiet, non-distracting environment in an adult atmosphere based on mutual respect and personal responsibility. HCLC supports students, as they understand that they can be successful as a learner both at the high school level and in post-secondary education as well.
