Mission Statement

Discovery Learning Center (DLC) serves a diverse, foreign-born population for whom English is a second language. This institution strives to realize two primary goals:

  3. Support effective teaching and learning through a dedicated and experienced faculty and staff, quality facilities, and up-to-date material and equipment;
  4. Strive to achieve a high rate of student retention;
  5. Promote student well-being; and
  6. Provide activities that support student comprehension of American culture.
