Education Overview
Gorman Learning Center's unique structure and mission isto serve each student’s needs while addressing state standards, a “one size fits all” curriculum is not mandated. The best curricular choices are made for each student when parent input and teacher expertise work towards a common goal. Sometimes it is necessary to order a specific text or workbook. Shipping time is dependent on the publisher and time of year. There can be a period of waiting for book order fulfillment.

Curriculum choices are shaped by several factors:
Each Independent Study Teacher or IST has familiarity with and access to products from a variety of publishers and companies, making it possible to bring together a wide range of learning resources and supplies. The IST will guide the parent in selecting appropriate resources to meet the goals and objectives of the California State Standards, focus choices of products and materials that serve the primary core
curriculum of language arts, math, science, and social studies, and refer the parent to Vendor Course Instruction, where available and appropriate, that will meet each student’s needs and correlate to the student’s course outline on the Master Agreement.

Traditional and technology-based learning programs are available, allowing for curriculum configurations that accommodate wide differences in student learning styles, abilities, and interests, which traditional school settings may not be as effective at accommodating.

Vendor Course Instruction, or VCI, is the use of extracurricular activities to supplement and enrich core curriculum content. A Vendor Course Instructor contracts with GLC to provide services such as tutoring, science labs, and performing arts classes. The school pays for these services out of a special budget designated for
each student that participates in the program.
