 Learning Community Charter School
is a part of the Charter School Athletic League (CSAL), which is a division of the New Jersey Education Consortium. We currently have a competitive girls' and boys' basketball team, as well as a co-ed soccer team, comprised of our middle school scholar-athletes. We are expanding our athletics this year by adding a brand new dance team in the fall. We also currently have intramural flag football.
