The ESSDACK Learning Center concept began as a performance-based high school diploma program in 1996 and has expanded into community learning centers across Kansas.

The high school diploma program is consistent across all of the ESSDACK Learning Centers with individualized content and schedules. You work at your own pace and set your own goals and timeline. This flexibility allows you to juggle employment and family responsibilities while earning your diploma.

Digital access allows for anywhere, anytime learning. Career development modules will help you achieve your long term goals.

Crucial to the Learning Center success is the support of the sponsoring high schools. Courses meet the standards of the district issuing the diploma. Each Learning Center has adapted to meet the needs of the community it serves. The Centers now provide classes such as computer classes, ESL classes, virtual art, and workplace classes to community members.
