Would you like to learn something new — without the cost of a college course and the pressure of being a student?  Kirtland’s Community Education program is perfect for you. It is for people interested in learning more about an area of interest, a hobby or a subject that may be intimidating.

Community Ed staff members take their show on the road to deliver classes and workshops throughout the region (including senior centers), as well as right on campus and other Kirtland sites.

Classes and workshops are designed to be affordable, valuable and enhance your quality of life.

Call (989) 275-5000, ext. 279 to register for any of our Community Education classes.
