Carmel Learning Center

The Carmel Learning Center (CLC) offers a family atmosphere by using individual online credit programs for each of its students. The CLC staff monitors progress and offers both teaching and inspiration as they interact with the students on a constant basis.

Students come to the CLC after referral by their high school counselor or administrator. Each student brings his or her own story as to how the CLC will help him or her obtain a high school diploma. For most, the learning-style change makes this dream become reality. Individual counseling and life skills seminars complement the atmosphere of personal worth and academic success. 

Some students attend half of their day at the CLC and the remaining time at J Everett Light Career Center or at work in the community. The work-study program allows CLC students to work and gain elective credits towards graduation by completing hourly and academic standards.

The CLC offers classes that allow a student to recover credits in Math, Science, English, Social Studies and Health. The curriculum at the center is evolving much like the entire program. The CLC continues to strive to meet the student where he or she might be and take them to the next level.

The Ruff Life of Garcia Service Project

 Our goal at the Carmel Learning Center is to raise $500 for Garcia the dog. We are doing this fundraiser for one reason, to help Garcia.

The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) is trying to save animals with low cost veterinary care, pit bull education, low cost pet adoption, training and behavior support, and general animal control.

 Poor Garcia, has been at the Humane Society for 6 years. He was seized from his first owner because the owner didn’t take care of him. The man even cropped his ears too short. After Garcia arrived he was adopted but then sent back to the HSHC because the second owner didn’t have enough time for him. And now he can’t find a happy home. Keeping Garcia for a year costs HSHC $2,920 which would be $8.00 per day.


We’ve raised $353.74 through a teacher’s jeans day and one industrious private donor. 


On April 28th, Hot Box Pizza will be donating 20% of all sales mentioning the Hamilton county humane society.

So go out there to Hot Box Pizza on April 28th have fun with your friends and family, and make a change in a dog’s life by doing so.
