Haywood Community Learning Center

Working together to overcome barriers and prepare for the future.

Our purpose is to grant the opportunity to earn a high school diploma to students who have not found success in a traditional school environment.

Our mission is to provide a positive and supportive alternative educational environment that values, respects, and responds to students’ individual needs, learning styles, and goals.

Our vision is for students to graduate with a high school diploma equipped with the experience, knowledge, skills, and mindset to meet their highest potential and positively contribute to their communities.

We believe:

  • Education is the backbone of self-reliant, constructive members of society
  • All students are capable of learning and deserve a quality education
  • Traditional education is not always the best fit for every student
  • Community is the key to providing our students the resources they need to be successful
