Handbook for Families

MLC is a kindergarten through twelfth grade alternative school that emphasizes a humane environment where students learn independence and responsible decision-making in a positive educational setting. Rich with tradition yet continually adapting to meet the changing needs of our students, MLC offers a unique academic program focused on experiential learning, character development, service to the community and the pleasures of life and learning.

This handbook is a collaborative effort of students, staff and members of the MLC community designed to help families understand and fully participate in our school and program. We hope you find it useful. We also hope you will not hesitate to ask whatever additional questions you might have and that you have a great school year with all of us at MLC.
