Habersham Christian Learning Center has announced its schedule for the upcoming school semester. According to Sarah Harrison, Executive Director, elective courses will continue to be offered to 10-12th grade students in Habersham County this fall. She anticipates that classes will be filled to capacity.
The HCLC will be making some adjustments to meet the school system’s requirements in the county. Masks will be provided for all students and staff members while inside the center. Social distancing will be followed and the classroom layout will be rearranged to support that.
The HCLC bus will continue to provide transportation for students. Masks will not be required on the bus but will be strongly encouraged. Windows of the bus will remain open during transportation.
Students have already registered for classes. However, students choosing to attend the Habersham Technology Academy will most likely not be able to take the HCLC class for elective credit. The Technology Academy is only offering core classes.
Harrison states, “Our staff will go above and beyond to keep our students safe and provide them with the best education possible.” Interestingly, the course for this fall is “Survival Strategies,” which Harrison points out is a beautiful example of God’s sovereignty. Students will discuss anxiety, grief, depression, conflict, and loneliness that can be experienced during the difficulties of life. “I’m confident our teachers will adapt to help our students process these trying and unique times, and I’m so thankful for a program that gives us the flexibility to meet our students’ needs,” Harrison states.
The Habersham Christian Learning Center has operated in Habersham since 1980 to provide in-depth training in Christian principles and values through biblical teaching to high school students. HCLS is funded through the United Way, gifts from private donors, and over 30 local churches.
