About Us

ILLUMINA LEARNING CENTER offers development tools for children, teens, and their guiding adults. Our programs help students achieve a balanced approach between successful academic performance and the skills needed for school success. 

Developed by Dennise Ondina, a former school teacher with a background in education, counseling and school administration, the program focuses on the development of the whole child. 


We believe that all children can learn beyond our expectations given the appropriate tools and environment. We seek to illuminate this natural spark and love of learning.  


Our mission is simple— to help children learn and grow. 


How do we do this?


  • By providing rigorous, evidenced-based learning in critical academic areas for school success


  • By facilitating direct, explicit, scaffolded instruction where students gain knowledge and mastery


  • By integrating brain development strategies that stimulate growth and higher-order thinking 

In 2020, we relocated to a beautiful 1,550 cottage in the heart of Tarpon Springs— a place where students love to learn!

We are passionate about what we do and feel grateful for the support of our incredible team and partners!
