linc logoThe purpose of learning communities is to promote the success of our students by offering a better way to learn.

We learn naturally by making connections between different ideas and experiences.

In learning communities, we integrate two or more subjects to create a better and easier understanding of both.

You work with the same community of students in the linked classes, helping each other succeed and making friends along the way. With some common readings and assignments, you learn more and complete more units with less stress.
