Expo kicks off registration for Enrichment Academy in The Villages


After spring break, it’s time to return to class—even for Villagers.

Adults may register soon for the April-September semester of the Enrichment Academy in The Villages. The fee-based community education courses start April 1 and are open to both Villages residents and non-residents age 30 and older.

The Learn & Grow Expo, a kickoff event for the semester, is scheduled from 8-11am Friday, Feb. 22, at Lake Miona Recreation Center, 1526 Buena Vista Blvd. On-site and online registration begins at 8:30am that day. Students can meet instructors, ask questions, and pick up a course catalog, according to a Recreation Department announcement. Core courses include subjects such as writing, language, history, art, dance, science, and technology.


Walk-in registration also will be available from 8:30am-4pm Monday-Friday at Lake Miona, La Hacienda, Eisenhower, and Rohan recreation centers.

More than 10,000 Villagers have signed up for classes since the Enrichment Academy began in October 2017. The academy is organized by the Recreation Department, and classes are conducted at recreation centers.
