Celebration Lifelong is a lifelong learning membership program open to all adults. Courses are offered purely for the joy of learning— no academic credit or certificates are awarded. Celebration Lifelong instructors, lecturers, and club facilitators are community volunteers. Course topics run the spectrum from arts, culture, and humanities to finance, science, technology, health, and even personal enrichment. The Celebration Lifelong experience offers a congenial learning community and social environment for sharing information and conversation while making lasting friendships.
Each fall and spring term consists of three sessions. A session lasts three weeks, courses have three classes, and most classes last one hour and fifteen minutes. Courses meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. In addition, Tuesdays from 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. are devoted to lectures.
The mission of Celebration Lifelong is to provide an extraordinary educational and enriching program for adults in Celebration and its environs. Dedicated to intellectual growth, social interaction, and well-being of its members, Celebration Lifelong is a membership program that relies on volunteers to give of their time and talents to teach, develop courses and provide technical and operational support during events.
Celebration Lifelong is a Celebration Foundation program and a community partnership program with the Celebration Residential Owners Association (CROA).
The Celebration Lifelong office is located at 610 Sycamore Street, Suite 110 in Celebration. To reach the Celebration Lifelong Program Manager directly please call 407-595-5905 or email Lifelong@CelebrationFoundation.org.
