White Clay Globe 

                                                  "Individualized and inclusive learning today for an

                                            empowered and responsible community tomorrow."


White Clay Learning Center is a K-12 accredited private school which has, for the past 20 years, offered an individualized education to a wide variety of learning styles and ability levels among school-aged children.  We achieve this in part, by utilizing a custom-created, socially  responsible curriculum, which we call unit-themes.  We believe that this is an essential tool in creating excitement and excellence in the learning environment of our school.  We integrate this meaningful curriculum within a variety of ability- appropriate core curriculum materials which our school has to offer.


It is our mission at White Clay Learning Center to:

   - teach each child as a unique individual and create a learning program for them, which will meet their needs and allow them to thrive in their intellectual, educational and social development

   - nourish each student's spiritual growth by reflecting on our abilities and celebrating our differences

   - include and empower our children to help make a difference in our community today and throughout their lives





We at White Clay Learning Center believe that education should be an ongoing experience that connects us to our world and fills us with a deeper understanding of the role each one of us plays in the universe.

"Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with orginial spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spirtually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die"
