  • A Message from the Principal


    natewhite Welcome Parents and Students of Olympia Learning Center,

    I am extremely delighted to have this opportunity to work with each and every one of you for the 2016  – 2017 school year. This year promises to be a year of  great opportunities for academic growth and creative planning for our students' future.

    Olympia Learning Center was created for students who are seeking alternative pathways to success. Our unique instructional support systems allow for smaller class sizes, individualized instruction in small groups, differentiated instructional delivery, interactive educational programs, and a variety of educational courses through Edgenuity (better known as E2020). Our faculty and staff are well trained professionals working in concert with district school personnel along with a great central office staff designed to offer first class vertical support to our students, parents, and business community.

    It is my desire to welcome each of you to what I am claiming will be your best school year ever. All it takes is your desire to do the same. Our doors are always open and we invite our parents, guardians, and our community business partners to be a part of the Olympia experience.
