LEARNING LABS

A SUPPLEMENT & SOLUTION IN TIMES OF COVID-19

For nearly 20 years, arc has fulfilled its mission of bridging the opportunity gap in education. In these challenging times, we continue that work with arc Learning Labs.

Our small group learning communities - pods of up to 10 students with a teacher and a supportive instructional aide - meet for a minimum of twelve 2-hour blocks of education each week throughout the fall semester (families can sign up for more time). This model enables hands-on, experiential, in-person learning with a high-standard of health and safety.
