Frisco Lakes is just one Texas 55+ community giving residents a chance to continue learning.

Active adults reap many benefits by committing to lifelong learning. Whether they try a new hobby, participate in a how-to class, or take an online course, when active adults take time to learn something new, they end up gaining much more than knowledge.

Lifelong learners enhance their thinking and cognitive abilities and often feel more confident and well-rounded. More and more individuals are interested in expanding their knowledge. Most U.S. adults (74%) consider themselves lifelong learners, according to the American Psychological Association.
