Ketchikan Learning Center


Hours: Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

Please contact for summer hours


The Ketchikan Learning Center is centrally located in the Plaza. Our convenient location makes it easy to combine a trip to the learning center with grocery shopping, a trip to the bank, or grabbing a bite to eat. The KLC has numerous curriculum samples, a lending library, loaner science kits, and spacious tables for testing and studying. There is a space for little ones to color, play with toys, and build duplos or legos when families visit as well. The KLC hosts Lego Robotics during the fall and organizes guided enrichment activities and field trips to local beaches and lakes. We strive to offer new activities and workshops for our homeschool families.
