About Us

ILLUMINA LEARNING CENTER offers development tools for children and teens. Our programs help students achieve a balanced approach between successful academic performance and the skills needed for school in school life.

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 guidance in an environment that stimulates learning. Hence, the name Illumina.

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 to help students gain practice, mastery, and independence

  • 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 an incredible team, students, families, and partners!
