La Semilla Learning Center in downtown Santa Ana, California, was started in response to a need expressed by the community and a downtown congregation for their children to have help with homework and improve their potential for the future.

The Learning Center launched as part of a partnership with First Presbyterian Church, Santa Ana in September 2008 for students attending elementary schools near Downtown Santa Ana. The Center is located at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Ana and provides a caring, Christ centered after-school learning environment for elementary school students.
