Liberty High School is an inviting campus centered on three academic concepts: small learning communities (SLCs); centers for applied learning; and the center for advanced science exploration. For the first time in its history, the district introduced SLCs as the organizing component for a campus. Four SLCs personalize the learning experience and create an intimate place where students can connect with their administrative team. Each of the four SLCs is composed of decentralized administration, a teacher professional center, and instructional areas to accommodate centers for applied learning that are defined from student interests, community input, local labor trends, and integration with local community college programs. The center for advanced science exploration, accessible to each SLC, provides specialized lab environments for the application and exploration of the sciences.

Transparency in the design allows for ease of supervision as students move in and about campus, using the entire site for learning. The learning commons is a flexible student-centered space where students can research and investigate. It can be used for individual, small, and large group learning activities.
