What Makes The Learning Center Unique

The Learning Center serves 77 students in grades PreK4 through 8 who are currently enrolled in KIPP DC schools, and whose Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) indicate that they require specialized instruction and related services in a full-time setting outside of general education. Our experienced and dedicated Special Education team will provide individualized learning plans for students in multi-age classrooms focused on specific brain-based needs. A research-based curriculum and backward mapping will ensure that students progress with the knowledge, skills, and social-emotional regulation required to be successful in a less restrictive environment. Our goal is to provide the necessary supports to help all students access the general education curriculum, accelerate their learning and develop the skills needed for success in a less restrictive environment, in high school, in college, and beyond.
