Life Skills Centers are public schools that serve students ages 16-22 who are at-risk or have had difficulty with the routine of traditional high school in the past.

We provide a safe, clean, interactive learning environment in which students learn from qualified teachers, utilizing hands-on training with the very latest in today's technology.
