About Connects Learning Center (website)

Connects Learning Center is a unique educational opportunity for students grades 9-12. It provides an alternative setting, computer-based curriculum, a service learning component, and work experience opportunities.

Connects Learning Center creates/fosters an educational environment where students are provided an opportunity to develop a positive self-image. This philosophy is adapted from the “circle of courage.” The school setting strongly resembles a small community in which the student has the opportunity to develop a sense of belonging,generosity,mastery, and independence - traits that are necessary for the development of a positive self-image. The program is designed to promote the four core areas.

Connects Learning Center, based in Cudahy, is a consortium of four area school districts — Cudahy, Franklin, South Milwaukee and Oak Creek-Franklin — for high school students at risk of dropping out. The school districts each fund a portion of the program.
