Mission and Vision


The Academy’s mission is to re-engage youth in the active pursuit of self-improvement, interpersonal growth and educational development, thereby putting them on a path to success. The mission will be served by providing students with an individualized and self-paced program, set within a flexible scheduling environment that is responsive to their individual needs and which maximizes each student’s ability to earn a high school diploma.


Within a climate where students and staff will feel safe, secure, and valued as individuals, Life Skills Center of Pontiac will encourage all students to excel to their highest potential while providing them the support and tools needed to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary options including specialized vocational training, community college, higher education and/or direct employment.  All students will be provided individual learning opportunities through the use of current technology.  We will work together to the best of our abilities to help them become proactive members of society, and to provide them with the necessary skills, knowledge, and experiences beneficial to meeting the challenges of the future.
