Learn Something New!

Community Education Courses

Community Education classes address subjects related to leisure, lifestyle and special interest. Courses range from single day seminars to several weeks. Courses are
non-credit and are taught by community professionals experienced in their chosen field. 

Come join us as we explore the arts, history, languages, dance and many other topics! It’s a great way to meet new people and energize your mind. Best of all, there are no tests – only the pleasure of learning and exploring!
