Y Learning Academy

The Fond du Lac Family YMCA will be opening registration soon for our new Y Learning Academy, a safe place for kids to have a structured day and engage in their virtual school learning, while offering academic time, physical activity and peer connections, all with support from staff at the Fond du Lac Family YMCA.


Registration is still available!

If enrollment becomes full, a waiting list will be created and child(ren) can be added to the list at time of registration.

REGISTER: Online at fdlymca.org (suggested) using an Online Account or in person at the Y.  

Registration will not be taken over the phone. 


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE:  View and print application

The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believe that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay.  The Fond du Lac Family YMCA provides assistance to students in the Y Learning Academy based on individual needs and circumstances. 

Scholarships are provided through financial contributions from the Fond du Lac Area Foundation and the Fond du Lac Area United Way.
