About NIA Learning Center

The Nia Learning Center is located in the revitalized business community of West Oak Lane at 7310 Ogontz Avenue. It was founded in the fall of 1981 by Ms. Carol Lloyd- Program Director. “Nia”, a Swahili word for purpose was birthed in response to a citywide public school strike in 1981. Nia responded by providing an immediate alternative academic learning program to neighborhood youth. During this crisis, Nia introduced two programs: a preschool educational program for children ages two through six years and an after school program was introduced to provide tutorial programs for public elementary and junior high school students. After the strike, Nia continued the pre-school program, after school programs, and extracurricular activities to introduce children to the creative and performing arts.
