Children aren't the only ones who benefit from quality local schools. Schalmont schools are open to adults in the community who want to have some healthy fun, learn new skills or creatively express themselves in the areas of creative arts, food & drink, health & fitness, life skills, technology and trips. 

Most classes are offered at a minimal fee, and several are discounted or free for resident senior citizens. These fees allow the program to be self-sustaining (i.e., classes are not included in the annual school budget).  

The Adult Education Program is intended for individuals 18 years of age and older. However, the age threshold may vary as indicated in course descriptions. For example, the defensive driving course is open to children as young as 16 and some courses are restricted to individuals 21 years of age and older. Limited exceptions may also be made at the instructor's discretion.

Program Guide & Registration
