Core Beliefs & Mission

At Learning Center North, we believe all humans want to be educated, to garner the skills needed to find meaning in life (of which skills like reading, writing and math are a part). We also believe in the ineffable worth of every person. Our program is built off of these values, recognizing students as whole people with unique needs and goals.

Our mission is to provide holistic services that empower whole students to be successful learners and achieve academic, employment, and personal success and self-sufficiency.
