Northwest Regional Learning Center


The Northwest Regional Learning Center (NRLC) serves high school students, most of whom are disenfranchised or court-involved. The program offers students small class sizes, a high teacher-to-student ratio, individualized attention and programming, and an alternate environment to the traditional high school campus. Students have the opportunity to work on earning credits for their high school diplomas (through their resident districts); prepare for the GED; explore aptitude and interests and develop a post-school plan; and improve academic, functional, and behavioral skills for a successful transition back to their home schools or into the community. Students also have the opportunity to earn their CPR, AED and first aid certification and to obtain their food handler’s permit, as well as receive instruction and guidance on the preparation of work-related documents and interview skills.
