CLC Hero Image

Community Education is an opportunity for local citizens and community schools, agencies and institutions to become active partners in addressing education and community concerns. Community Education brings community members together to identify and link community needs and resources in a manner that helps people to help themselves raise the quality of life in their communities.

Community Education is a unique concept that embraces these beliefs:

  • Education is a lifelong process
  • Everyone in the community shares responsibility for the mission of educating all members of the community
  • Citizens have a right and a responsibility to be involved in determining community needs, identifying community resources, and linking those needs and resources to improve their community

Community Education provides programs in adult learning, after school enrichment, one day trips, multi-day travel, and opportunities for adults with disabilities.

The Summer brochure is our youth only catalog that offers students many fun opportunities throughout the summer months of June through August.
