Welcome to Mt. Scott Learning Center

Our accredited education program is specially designed for middle school and high school students who benefit from a non-traditional learning environment. We provide a safe, nurturing, challenging environment in which most of our students discover for the first time what it means to succeed.

Our consolidated grades 6-12 program offers distinct advantages — the building blocks of success:
  • • Small Learning Communities
  • • Experienced Instructional Staff
  • • Counseling Support Services
  • • Community-based, Challenging Curriculum
  • • Service Learning
  • • Community Partnerships
  • • Teacher Advisors

    Mt. Scott Learning Center’s new “Graduate Spotlights” page highlights the stories of various MSLC students that have overcome assorted challenges and obstacles on the path to graduation and post-secondary success. Their stories are inspiring and help explain the value of services provided by MSLC teachers and support staff.

    MSLC launched this school year’s monthly service learning program on October 16th with students and staff serving their community at a variety of non-profit organizations and agencies. Among the projects were MSLC teams serving at a preschool for refugee children and at an assisted living senior care facility, cleaning up trash and debris in the Foster-Powell neighborhood, clearing invasive plants at Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, and grocery shopping for elderly and disabled residents.

    Volunteers make valuable and lasting contributions to Mt. Scott Learning Center and Dick Rudzinski is a shining example. The retired educator has been volunteering at MSLC the past five years tutoring students in math.

    MSLC has adopted the Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) program this year. PBIS is a school-wide system of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.

    Students earn GOTCHA coupons from staff for demonstrating positive behavior expectations that have been previously discussed and taught in classroom and non-classroom settings. Students can redeem the coupon at the end of the day for a small prize or enter weekly drawing for other prizes, which include a staff member either cooking breakfast for them or delivering a donut and hot drink to them during class.
