Our quality learning opportunities are for students of all ages and many interests. All our classes are offered locally in our school district community, so sign up with a friend or on your own. We invite you to explore our programs, find something new, and register today!

This year, we combined the youth and adult catalogs to make it easier for you to find engaging, affordable programs that interest you and your family. You can also find information about our class offerings on our website, Facebook page, and other social media accounts.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our excellent teachers. They work with us to keep our wide variety of classes engaging and valuable for everyone. Thank you to all our LEARNwest and Adventures teachers for sharing their time, talents, and skills with our community!

If you would like to join our talented teachers or have an idea for a new class, give us a call or send us an email. We are always looking for new classes and activities, and we would love to know what you are looking to learn—or even teach—as we start planning for the winter session.
