Performance Learning Center

The Carrollton City Schools Performance Learning Center (PLC) is a non-traditional school setting serving grades 9-12.

The PLCs were started by Communities In Schools (CIS) of Georgia during the 2002-2003 school year and have now expanded throughout Georgia and in other states in the CIS network. PLCs are an initiative of Communities In Schools, and are one of the many programs designed to effectively and efficiently address both the academic and human service needs of students and their families.


Welcome to the Performance Learning Center, where we recognize that “One size does not fit all.” Have you ever heard the saying, “the world does not revolve around you?” By design, the learning environment of the Performance Learning Center is designed to revolve around the diverse academic and unique social needs of students.

The Performance Learning Center is a small, non-traditional high school serving students in grades 9-12. Students enroll at the PLC for a variety of reasons which may include seeking early graduation, college dual enrollment opportunities or the recovery of academic credits. Many of the younger students enroll to develop self-efficacy and to enjoy the PLC’s nurturing atmosphere which focuses on an in-depth holistic development of the students. Additionally the PLC’s learning environment appeals to students who desire a smaller, blended computer-based learning environment. The program includes an intense academic component anchored by a rigorous online instructional system and project-based learning. Depending on a student’s academic pursuits, a student’s schedule may require attendance on several campuses, moving seamlessly between the PLC, Carrollton High School, West Georgia Technical College and or the University of West Georgia. As the PLC slogan states, the PLC offers students the best of both worlds.

As you can see, the PLC takes pride in transforming traditional education into a customized fit for each student. We appreciate your interest in the PLC.
