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. Prior to the current epidemic we provided our noncredit, college-level courses in a classroom at the Ocala Campus of the College of Central Florida. Our courses cover 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, and scientists.

Since the College Campus closed in March, Senior Learners has been using online conferencing software to offer classes remotely. We will provide updates when the classroom becomes available on whether sufficient instructors and students are comfortable coming to the classroom for us to offer courses there. See the list of our online courses below and register for our online classes. Click to view the catalog for the current term. Learn how to join a Zoom meeting.
