Brookline Adult & Community Education partners with Brookline Public Schools to offer lifelong educational opportunity to all newcomers to the United States, working people and professionals, those in transition or career change, older citizens, persons with special needs, and especially those who have not been able to participate fully in the educational process. By offering programs that bridge the generations, the Brookline Public Schools seeks to unite the community in a common purpose – educating for the improvement of the quality of life for all its members.
Brookline Adult & Community Education is one of the oldest non-credit, public education programs in Massachusetts. Adult education has been a part of the Brookline community since 1832. It is now the largest program in the state and serves people from Brookline and the metro-Boston area. People like you take our classes. People who know that learning does not stop with graduation, but is a lifelong process. People who seek personal and professional growth; entertainment and education; new ideas and new experiences, and who enjoy the company of others who seek the same. Our instructors are poets, computer programmers, teachers, chefs, therapists, doctors, artists, and businesspeople who come to share their knowledge and training simply because they love what they do.
