Performance Learning Center

What is the Performance Learning Center?



Cabarrus County Schools' Performance Learning Center is a small, non-traditional high school geared toward students who are not succeeding in a traditional school setting. The PLC incorporates a caring philosophy and approach that combines strong personal relationships between staff and students with an intense focus on academic achievement. The PLC has low student to teacher ratios (18:1) and students receive one-on-one attention when needed.
