Our Story

The International Learning Center of Jacksonville, FL (ILCJAX) was founded in 2003. The exceptional rate of growth mandated that the program incorporate.  In June of 2007 we became The International Learning Center of Jacksonville, FL, Inc. Shortly thereafter we were granted 501(c)(3) status. We have served over 2000 students in the last ten years.

Our Approach

The International Learning Center offers a fresh approach to learning English with our proprietary WorkPlace Plus curriculum.  We have worked with the publisher to expand the lessons using ancillary materials and uniquely crafted games and puzzles in order to offer a complete learning experience for our students.

Our Location

The International Learning Center is located in the heart of Jacksonville, FL.    Jacksonville is an intake city.  That means refugees and immigrants have been flooding into our city for the last 20 years.  There are so many people now that are not living in their place of birth.

The International Learning Center (ILC) takes a compassion-based approach to reaching internationals here in our city and is now in the process of being replicated in other major cities, such as New York.
