Princeton Learning Cooperative

The Princeton Learning Cooperative (PLC) educates its students outside of the structure of a traditional high school.  Its staff supports teens as they create personalized educations based on their interests, strengths, and goals.  PLC offers, mentoring, classes, tutoring, help finding internship, job, and volunteer opportunities, and helps teens with college admissions and other transitional steps as they move on to their adult lives.  PLC is part of a growing network of 13 other centers and wants to collaborate with them to report on findings about student success. PLC would like to gather and synthesize information about learning and development outcomes of students who are participating in similar programs across the country. To date, the staff at these small non-profits have not had the capacity to collect and analyze data to explore the effectiveness of these programs across the entire network.
