Seniors from SLC went to UACCM on September 29th for a college campus visit. The students were able to tour each of the buildings and hear about all the opportunities UACCM offers students. At the end of the tour, the students ate lunch in the activities center and visit with students already attending the college. UACCM has not only 2-year transferable classes but also a wonderful vocational program that prepares students for the workforce. Our goal at SLC is to expose students to as many of these opportunities and let them realize that college is so much more than a classroom, its hands on experiences that train you for good paying jobs.

Mr. Hettinga uses a wide array of student-centered activities to engage students in the social sciences. Most kids would think history is boring and would rather discuss current issues and trends that have an impact on their everyday lives. By implementing various teaching and learning strategies, students are able to analyze the impact of events that may have happened several hundred years ago and relate them to our culture. The teachers at SLC create student-centered learning environment where our kids’ needs are met in a real and relevant way.
