Jacksonville Campus

Plans for the Jacksonville school campus began 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 school 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. Now, there are 13 homes all located within minutes of the main school campus.

Today, the residential educational school building has been moved to a newly renovated location in Anniston, Alabama.
