Who we are:

The Northern Light Learning Center is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization. Our primary purpose is to build a cooperative learning community that expands the educational and social opportunities for homeschoolers in the Ithaca area. We coordinate a regular schedule of classes and events, maintain a central gathering space, and organize shared resources. NLLC is a safe and supportive environment. Here, adults and children of all ages can share their lives and learn together in ways that are fun, engaging, and meaningful.

Our Program:

Our programming will be organized seasonally, including: classes on a wide range of subjects, social clubs and gatherings, community events, special workshops, and field trips. Most of these programs will be led or organized by members, with the support and coordination of our Programming Coodinator. Member programs are all free aside from material fees. Paid instructors will be found within the wider community for specific expertise or group tutoring as needed, with the cost shared by those attending.

Our Space:

NLLC is located on the second floor of the Clinton Hall building at 108 N. Cayuga St. in downtown Ithaca. Our space includes classrooms, a social/play area, a quiet study area and the scheduled use of a gymnasium in the Henry St. John Building on the corner of Clinton and Geneva streets. This range of spaces can accommodate many types of activities, small or large, focused or energetic. Some programs are also offered offsite as they may have special requirements that cannot be met at our downtown location.
