Enriching lives is our mission.

With lifelong learning at the core of our culture — packed in there with our vision for Longhorn spirit, living well, dreaming big, laughing often and grabbing life by the moment — we now offer a higher-level educational program for our residents and the public. Inquiring Minds provides academic opportunities for more advanced learning on topics of special interest, making it the perfect addition to the learning activities already in place at Longhorn Village.

Every Inquiring Minds course features a subject-matter expert with an interesting point of view and is delivered in a series of six weekly in-person sessions. Each six-week course is $30 for current Longhorn Village residents and $100 per person for the general public.
