Learning is a lifelong activity. We offer a variety of opportunities for people to learn and stretch themselves intellectually. From formal, for-credit classes to friendly neighborhood discussion groups, people of all ages and stages are growing and learning.

Schools are a capstone of West Villages, and the Sarasota County school district is “A” rated. A strong variety of public and private schools are located within and nearby West Villages. A kindergarten through 8th grade campus will open in the next few years to provide quality education for our young people. This school will be near the State College of Florida campus, making this an education corridor.
