About Us

Our Philosophy

Our non-profit learning center is a well-respected community resource that supports learning and academic achievement without limits, for all learners. Our goal is to provide evidence-based, individualized instruction, in-depth investigations of topics of interest and support for identified areas of need. An emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of each learner. All learning styles are nurtured through authentic learning experiences designed to remediate, accelerate, extend, and enrich various curricula.

Our Mission

The mission of Enlightened Learning Center is to support life-long learners who have a need or passion for knowledge, by providing strong, supportive, academic programs for PreK-12 students, college students, homeschoolers, teachers, and administrators.
