An Introduction to TLC

The Learning Center at Shorecrest is a model of excellence for educating students. TLC serves all students of our school to ensure academic success at all levels including Alpha, JK, and K-12.

Shorecrest is home to students who are bright, kind, and ready to learn. Our focus is on the whole child, moving past labels to understand each child’s unique underlying story.

Our evidence-based curriculum and instructional methodologies have been proven to be effective in supporting students whose academic performance does not match their cognitive potential.
The secret of education lies in respecting the students.
TLC’s philosophy is simple: respect the student. Everything evolves from this premise. Respect that every student can learn, and that each student learns differently. From this shared respect grows The Learning Center’s welcoming atmosphere, our staff’s nurturing disposition, and the personalized, specialized educational programs. We believe in a strong team approach to optimize student achievement. 

The Shorecrest Learning Center demonstrates its commitment to student respect by:
  • Teaching essential skills to mastery using specialized, research-based programs
  • Honoring each student’s unique learning style
  • Honoring each student’s interests and abilities
