Our Adult/Community Education Program provides recreation, enrichment, vocational, and educational courses for people of all ages. We succeed when the community takes advantage of the services provided. We urge you to take part in our programs by: suggesting ideas for our programs; sharing your skills or hobbies by instructing a program or by enrolling in one or more of our programs.   


Shenendehowa offers a wide variety of classes for the community from aquatics to art to investing.  For more information:
