As the principal of Stanly Academy Learning Center, it is my privilege to welcome our families back to school for the 2018-2019 school year.

We have spent the summer anxiously preparing for our hallways and classrooms to be filled with the energy and excitement high school students bring.

With the beginning of another school year, there comes a sense of reflection and of anticipation.

Here at SALC, we will continue to seek to partner with our families and communities in order to ensure the best possible high school experience for our students.

It is always our goal to help our students graduate career and college ready.

Our students are our top priority and your SALC family welcomes you back for another great year.
