Linking School and Community for 40 Years

What is Community Education?

Community Education is an opportunity for citizens, schools, agencies and businesses to become active partners in meeting the educational and recreational needs of their community. It most often is known for its classes and activities held in local schools. Community Education is a life long process, a process in which everyone in the community needs to be involved.
