Accelerated Learning at LOC

The Learning Opportunities Center is accelerated, meaning the learning pace is faster. In general, the same kind of traditional class materials are covered in a shorter amount of time than in a traditional public school term.  

We have more terms per year as a result of this acceleration and therefore students are able to catch up on their credits.

Each year we have three full-credit terms lasting between 10 - 12 weeks (much like a college quarterly schedule). There are also special sessions lasting two or three weeks that are offered several times a year in between terms. These shorter sessions feature classes with longer class periods and more intensive study.

This means that a student may be able to gain credits at least 50% faster than at their home school and sometimes as much as 100% faster.

A typical year might have the following term schedule:
