Renaissance Academy Announces Winter/Spring 2009 Open House and Course Offerings

FORT MYERS, FL - The Renaissance Academy of Florida Gulf Coast University announces its winter/spring 2009 schedule of programs featuring an extensive and diverse curriculum of more than 250 single lectures and courses. An Open House Event, to be held 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, January 11, at the FGCU Naples Center, 1010 5th Avenue South, Naples, will provide an opportunity for participants to meet instructors, register for courses, and enjoy refreshments.

A new online registration system is available at where participants may browse and register for courses safely and securely online using a credit card.

Founded in January 2001, and now the region's premiere lifelong learning program for adults, seniors and retirees, the Renaissance Academy is committed to the concept that learning should never cease; that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active fundamentally enriches and invigorates lives.

Among the Renaissance Academy's offerings are affordable, non-credit single lectures, short courses, day trips, computer classes, film series, life enrichment classes, writing workshops, music lessons, travel abroad programs and other special events. There are no exams or grades, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors and peers.

Course fees are typically $25 per lecture, and provide access to Academy programs located at twelve locations throughout Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties.
