Welcome to Life Skills Center of Pontiac


Dear Visitor,

Welcome! Thank you for visiting us online.  Here at Life Skills Center of Pontiac, we believe that the partnership between parents, the community, and the school is an integral part of success for our students.  We not only encourage parent involvement, we NEED it!  Throughout the school year, we hope to see the results of our parents' efforts.  Whether helping individuals and small groups in the classroom or volunteering at special events, our Life Skills Center parents play a vital role in their student's education.  As partners, we share the common goal of giving each student one of the greatest opportunities in the world: earning their high school diploma.

As we move forward, we will continue to support each and every student, holding to the belief that each individual contributes to the strength and success of our school as a whole. 

We look forward to having the opportunity to get to know each of you during the 2016-2017 school year.
