Community and Continuing Education
Kaskaskia College is proud to serve the lifelong learning needs of our district. Continuing and Community Education is all about providing classes, workshops and other learning opportunities to enrich lives.
Continuing and Community Education is for active, curious, and continually learning adults, adolescents and children. Great opportunities are provided for people to get together and participate in programs designed to be socially rewarding, stimulating, and thought provoking. A variety of non-credit and credit classes and activities are offered on a monthly basis throughout the year. There are no exams, homework assignments or grades -- just the opportunity to learn for learning's sake. Programs are coordinated to reflect the needs and the interests of the community college population. These programs are changing, as needs and interest are also changing, but include; academic enrichment, health and fitness, computers, dance, history, crafts, hobbies, personal enrichment, and professional development. It is the goal of the department to assist students in obtaining courses to update their skills, reach their educational and cultural goals.
