Discovery Learning Center (DLC) provides a range of advisory services to assist students with topics such as goal setting, planning, academic progress and achievement. The core of the advising program centers around conversations in which advisers serve as a resource of knowledge and a source of direction for students to develop action plans in order to achieve academic success and social integration.

The Academic Director tracks student progress in the IEP and helps students who are struggling to make progress and advance through the IEP. If you have concerns on your academic progress or college/university admissions, contact the Academic Director for advice.
