Academy of Lifelong Learning


For the Joy of it





The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Washington College is designed for those who believe learning is wonderful at any age! WC-ALL is a peer-led, self-supported autonomous department of the College that was created for adults who seek intellectual stimulation without the requirements for academic credit - learning for the joy of learning.


Each College semester the Academy offers two six-week sessions with 12-15 courses each session; approximately 400 Eastern Shore residents become members and register for as many courses as they wish, for one all-inclusive membership fee.

WC-ALL also participates in a community-based mentoring program for international students managed by Washington College. The Academy assists by recruiting volunteer adult mentors, who help give International students at Washington College a taste of life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The WC-ALL office is in #5 William Smith Hall, at ground level, and is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings between 9 am - 12 noon. Note that parking is limited.
