Why CLC?

The goal of education is not just the acquisition of knowledge, but the power to use it. At CLC, we build pathways to empowerment and empathy through education. We recognize that this path will look a little different for each student, and that’s the beauty of CLC! By fostering relationships and finding creative, student-focused approaches to learning, CLC ushers students towards fulfilling lives.

Rebecca Young - Development Manager

Rebecca has a Bachelor’s degree from Western State Colorado University in English and Outdoor Education, and Master of Fine Arts in Fiction & Nonfiction from Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Why CLC?

CLC is about so much more than strict academics. Yes, we help students learn how they learn best and improve their academic performance, but we recognize that when a student is struggling to learn, they can feel incredibly isolated. When students come to clc, they’re getting a mentor and an ally, someone who has their back and will stand beside them.
