We are a youth centered community located in the central Hilltop neighborhood. Our goal is to foster a sense of belonging in a safe space so that each student can discover their potential as leaders in our community.


The Community Learning Center is open after school, providing a place for middle and high school youth to hang out, build positive relationships, receive school support and engage in activities that interest them.

We believe in the boundless potential of every student and stand ready to accompany them on their journey of growth and discovery.
