We offer a variety of services for our students

The Thomas County Learning Center provides the same supportive, caring atmosphere found in all ESSDACK Learning Centers. In addition to the high school diploma completion program, ESL classes are offered to help non-native speakers gain proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking English both onsite and off-site in the neighboring community of Rexford. The dedicated, caring staff members are committed to the immediate and long term success of every student.

The computerized delivery system is consistent in all of the Learning Centers but the program is individualized for each student both in content and schedule. You work at you own pace and set you own goals and timeline. Totally virtual delivery allows for anywhere, anytime learning and the addition of a career development component helps meet your long term goals. The flexibility of the courses allows each student to juggle employment and family responsibilities while earning his or her diploma.
