The Importance of the Advanced Learning Center

At Options Schools, we believe that every student should have the opportunity to succeed academically and personally. That’s why the Advanced Learning Center plays a crucial role in our mission. What sets us apart is our complete Indiana College Core pathway, which equips students with 30+ essential credits that establish a strong foundation for their collegiate journey. By enabling students to bypass a full first year of college credits, we ensure a seamless academic transition, promoting student college readiness and success. What’s more, our smaller campus size allows for more personalized academic guidance and support, enhancing the overall learning experience for our students. We are dedicated to ensuring that every student at Options Schools receives the comprehensive education and support they need to thrive.

Diversified Pathways for College and Career Readiness

We are committed to preparing our students for both college and careers. We understand that not every student is destined for higher education, and that’s why we offer a range of pathways that go beyond the traditional college route. Alongside the Indiana College Core pathway, we provide opportunities for students to earn certifications in various fields, such as business administration, cosmetology, and more through partners that include J Everett Light Career Center. By accumulating relevant credits or certifications during their high school years, our students are not only equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge but also positioned to enter the workforce with a competitive resume. 

What’s Offered Through The Advanced Learning Center?

Career Fairs

Career fairs bring together local businesses and colleges to offer valuable insights and opportunities to our students. By connecting our students with industry professionals, we provide them with a firsthand understanding of various career paths. Options recently hosted its 2024 Student Job Fair on May 10.

College Visits

Through organized college visits, students have the opportunity to explore campuses, interact with current students, attend informational sessions, and get a firsthand experience of college life. These visits not only provide valuable insights into the academic programs and campus culture but also help students envision themselves as part of a particular college community.

21st Century Scholars Assistance

We assist our students in meeting this program’s requirements, such as maintaining a 2.5 GPA, taking the SAT, and participating in college trips. By doing so, we enable them to access scholarship opportunities that alleviate the financial burden of higher education. 

Online and In-House Pathways

Our online and in-house pathways encompass a range of courses directly offered at the campus, providing students with specialized education in high-demand industries such as computer science, business administration, and finance and investment. These pathways are designed to equip students with the practical skills and knowledge necessary for success in their chosen fields while offering a comprehensive educational experience tailored to their career aspirations.

Partner Pathways

Options Schools collaborates with external institutions to offer students additional educational opportunities and resources to enhance their learning. For instance, the Ivy Tech Community College partner pathway provides access to high-paying, high-demand jobs and transfer admission to specific Indiana four-year schools, while our Pursuit Institute partner pathway offers customized career and technical education programs aligned with the needs of local employers, empowering students to pursue specialized career paths.
