Teens who are doing poorly in school do not appreciate the value of an education. At Thayer Learning Center, we teach our students that an education is a privilege. During the first phase of the program, cadets are not permitted to work on their schooling. School is earned during the second phase of the program where time is alloted for them to study at an individual pace with trained tutors and professional teachers. The students at Thayer Learning Center are able to focus on their course work without distraction, while getting the individual attention they need which is not present in public schools

Our MottoIt is mastery of these simple things in life that brings true success in life:
Spiritual Identity
Physical Fitness
Good Nutrition
Time Management
Financial Management
Goal Setting
Service to others
