We encourage everyone to find courses that match their interests or broaden their horizons join us for one or both of our sessions,” said Sandy Brown, WC-ALL Administrator. “Our programming is open to anyone of any age or background who is interested in learning and provides a fantastic opportunity for learning and enrichment without having to take a for-credit course.” 

All classes are free to members and memberships are available on a semester or annual basis, for individuals or couples. In addition to offering four sessions a year, WC-ALL hosts a Learn-at-Lunch series, hosting various guest speakers throughout the year.  

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Washington College Academy of Lifelong Learning, which currently has about 300 members. All courses are planned, run, and led by WC-ALL volunteers, who offer a wide range of expertise and professional experience. Membership in WC-ALL is open to people of all ages and backgrounds.
