The Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc. helps students maximize their learning potential by providing personalized educational programs, consultative services for parents, and programs to accommodate community needs.
The Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc . (LRC) was founded by the Junior League of Greater Lakeland, Inc. in 1975 to help students by providing personalized supplemental education programs and consulting services for parents. At that time it was known as the Learning Disabilities Center and its primary purpose was to serve students with specific learning disabilities and provide support for their parents. The name changed in 1977 as programs for the learning disabled grew in the public school system and LRC expanded its services to help all students maximize their learning potential.
From its humble beginnings as a small volunteer group working in borrowed space, LRC today has over 500 certified teachers who provide countywide services to over 4,000 students ages five through adult.
