There are many families in the area that would significantly benefit from CLC’s approach to learning. If you know a young person who is looking for a positive alternative to school, please tell them about us and direct them to this website. 


CLC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. We do not receive any state or federal funding and rely on our membership fees, donations, and significant fundraising in order to provide our services and program.

Membership fees allow CLC to operate on a basic level. We rely on community donors for the rest. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to CLC, please click the button below or reach out to
