Welcome to the Area Learning Center.  We hope you will use this site to explore additional education programs offered at Minneapolis Public Schools.  The Area Learning Center offers a variety of learning opportunities through our Extended Day Programs, Winter Break Session, Spring Break Session, Summer Session and Homeschooling. 

Our primary goal is to help our students increase academic growth, recover credits, and explore career options that will lead to graduation and a brighter future beyond. We believe in your child.
