Who We Are
The Perry Learning Center aspires to become a model learning institute that establishes meaningful partnerships while providing innovative and relevant instruction for students of the 21st century. At the Perry Learning Center, students learn through rigorous instruction, relevant content, and respectful relationships. We provide flexible scheduling using a block schedule for students to earn additional credits in a school year. This allows students who may have struggled with classes an opportunity to graduate with their class or as close to with their class as possible. This same structure also allows many of our students to graduate 6-12 months early. Last year we graduated 160 students!
We boast a state-of-the-art facility equipped with 21st Century Classroom technology. Our dual enrollment Career Academy also offers students an array of relevant courses taught by Atlanta Technical College instructors. Come experience our Perry Pride!
