Madonna Learning Center


Madonna Learning Center has modeled that everyone can make change for the better of our communities! We are grateful to be the recipient of their efforts and concern for the Ukraine.
This morning members of the Germantown Police Department were honored to be a part of Madonna Learning Center's Read Across America event. Officers read to the students, answered questions, and helped with arts and crafts!

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this event!
Curves of Memphis has donated our services for this fundraiser.

Guess who's back in town?! That's right, Buddy (the City's Elf on the Shelf) is back for another 12 days of fun around Germantown! You can keep up with Buddy and all of his adventures for the next 12 days by following the City's social media channels.

Buddy decided to kick off his trip to Germantown with a visit to GPAC. Buddy crashed the Germantown Symphony Orchestra’s rehearsal for their upcoming holiday concert on Saturday. Buddy was able to practice his sing-along skills and we think he may have found the best seat in the house.

If you are like Buddy and want to get into the holiday spirit through music, there are some very festive performances lined up at GPAC. Here's a full list:

Germantown Symphony Orchestra: Together Again for the Holidays
Saturday, December 11, 7 p.m.

Madonna Learning Center’s a Christmas Gift: Bringing Joy Home
Tuesday, December 14 and Wednesday, December 15, 7 p.m.

MLC is a private school where children & adults with special needs can reach their full potential. Madonna students range from 5 to 30 years of age.

Madonna Learning Center, initially called "Madonna Day School", was founded in 1969 by three Benedictine Sisters from Ferdinand, Indiana. The Sisters envisioned a faith-based environment where the cognitive, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical developmental needs of children with disabilities could be realized.

Our Story

Madonna Learning Center, initially called "Madonna Day School", was founded in 1969 by three Benedictine Sisters from Ferdinand, Indiana. The Sisters envisioned a faith-based environment where the cognitive, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical developmental needs of children with disabilities could be realized. Madonna students range from age 4 and up.

We are proud to mark our upcoming 50th year in the Memphis area as we celebrate our faith-based roots and groundbreaking individualized approach for our students. We currently operate the only private independent school in the Mid-South for students ages 4 through adulthood with disabilities that offers a therapeutic environment with a small student to teacher ratio.
