Our students thrive in this individualized learning environment.

Unique Characteristics

The Lloyd Harvey Hatch Center for Learning Strategies provides students with significant unrealized potential the opportunity to get back on track and thrive. Our commitment to support students with different learning styles, challenges, and profiles has been the cornerstone of the school for nearly 100 years. The programs offered through the Hatch Center provide an independently designed path for students to achieve independent success. ColLAB’s, short for Collaborative Laboratory, are elective style workshops that cumulate in interdisciplinary, immersive, collaborative projects. These are opportunities for real world, hands-on learning experiences. During this time students have created inventions, started companies, and traveled the world. Check out our recent graduate who “made a deal” on the tv show The Shark Tank!
