Students have different strengths, interests, challenges, and needs. At Southwest Secondary Learning Center, we aim to empower gifted students with a dynamic education that ignites their passions, intellect, and creativity.

A Unique Learning Environment for Gifted Students

Our school provides a combination of self-directed learning opportunities, small class sizes, and hands-on learning projects. We’ve found that many gifted students thrive in this environment. Our curriculum is rigorous and committed to excellence in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), equipping students with the skills necessary to navigate a rapidly evolving world.

Our flexible programs and online learning options allow students to tailor their education to their unique needs and aspirations. Through dual enrollment opportunities, we bridge the gap between high school and higher education, ensuring our students are well-prepared for the challenges ahead.

Our unwavering dedication to social-emotional learning also fosters resilience, empathy, and a strong sense of community, guiding our students to become both academically accomplished and emotionally intelligent, socially responsible leaders of tomorrow.


SSLC provides self-guided learning and an opportunity for students to explore their interests and passions in their own way. Many gifted students flourish in this environment, but we encourage parents and their students to explore what our school has to offer before deciding it’s the right fit.
