Community Learning Center

Learning: It's why we're here; it's what we do

Where everyone is always welcome to all programming opportunities!

The 21 Century Community Learning Center (CLC) after school program is open to all TCHS students. Students may attend as many of these weekly events as they would like. Sign up is required for all off site activities as space may be limited and so that transportation may be arranged.

Families and friends of our students are always welcome at TC High School's CLC programming. Visitors, please check-in at the school office and the CLC room prior to attending activities. Thank you.

CLC Hours

  • Programming Begins: Monday, September 19, 2016 
  • Hours: 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM, Monday through Thursday
  • Includes snacks or meal, and transportation with free BATA passes

Programming Options

The program will feature options such as academic support, music, physical fitness, art, cooking, horsemanship, community volunteer opportunities, social work assistance, counselors corner and much, much, more.  In addition, we are always receptive and open to new programming suggestions and ideas. We approach each session as an opportunity to explore and learn new things, as well as meet and make new friends.

A meal, snacks and beverages are provided daily for those productively participating in our program, and everyone is always welcome. Join us!

Should you have comments, questions, concerns or suggestions, we hope to hear from you.  This program is designed to enrich and enliven the lives of our students, the students from the entire area, as well as people from our Northern Michigan communities.

We sincerely hope that you’ll stop by sometime!
