• Enrollment Process at MLC for 2023-24

    Metropolitan Learning Center is an alternative, focus option school open to all students in the Portland Metro area. Our school is the best fit for self-directed, motivated students seeking a small, inclusive school environment that includes cross-age Kx12 experiences and experiential learning. MLC does not have a neighborhood boundary and enrolls students through a lottery process. Students may apply from other Districts as well.
