Get to Know Us

Welcome to
Kent County Secondary
Intensive Learning Center

The Kent County Secondary Intensive Learning Center (KCSILC), currently housed in the Capital School District, includes an alternative program that provides services for public school districts in Kent County, Delaware. KCSILC serves middle and high school special education student population who have not been successful in their home schools due to a history of school related behavior problems. These students require a more restrictive setting than their home school/district is able to provide.

KCSILC, will retain a level of independence, but will share administration and resources such as case management, food service, transportation, social and health services, and when feasible, programming.  Educational programs will be unique and individualized based on the needs of the students.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Kent County Secondary Intensive Learning Center (KCSILC) is to provide a meaningful and measurable learning experience for students who have not been successful in the traditional school setting.  KCSILC is specifically designed for students who have experienced attendance, behavior and/or achievement problems.  KCSILC is committed to providing a safe, positive, student centered academically comprehensive program that is sensitive to the varied learning styles of all students.  KCSILC offers an individualized educational program that includes academics, counseling, and online learning.  Our goal is to empower our students to become productive, confident, active and contributing members of their communities.

Our Intent

  • We strive to communicate and consistently address the needs of the whole child, this includes behavior, mental health, social and emotional health, and academic rigor/supports.
  • If the needs of the whole child are met, this will reinforce many things including the safety of the school, the ability to hire and retain quality teachers and foster pride.
  • By addressing the needs of the whole child, the students will be more engaged and the behavior issues will be minimized.
  • Addressing the needs of the whole child, improves school climate and safety, improves the perceptions of school, and supports the staff feeling valued and supported in their work.  Students, families and staff will be supported, empowered, and equipped.
