Senior Learners, Inc.

Become a Senior Learner with us …

For the past six years, Senior Learners, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers, has provided educational opportunities to seniors 50 years old or more. Before the current pandemic, we offered our noncredit, college-level courses in a classroom at the Ocala Campus of the College of Central Florida. Until the pandemic is tamed, we have shifted to online courses covering a broad range of academic interests, including Health, Science & Technology, The Arts, History, and Languages. Our outstanding instructors come from a wide range of backgrounds and include current and retired artists, musicians, teachers, professors, doctors, engineers, and scientists. Learn about our instructors.
