Jacksonville Campus

The Learning Tree began planning the Jacksonville school campus in 1990. A 33,000 sq ft building was located on eight acres of land between Jacksonville and Piedmont Alabama. The building was renovated to provide for  residential quarters and classroom space. The Jacksonville campus opened in September of 1991 with a capacity of 12 children in the residential program.

In 1994, The Learning Tree opened their first group home in Calhoun County. Today, there are  13 homes all located within minutes of the main school campus serving 34 children and adolescents.
