Online Learning Available at The Adult School

The Adult School has always had as its mission to provide life-long learning opportunities for the communities we serve, and we're not letting COVID-19 get in our way.  For the fall 2020 semester, we are pleased to offer online classes with local instructors as well as additional classes through our partnership with Ed2Go. We're also happy to be able to share programming information from The Farmstead Arts Center.  Please click here for a list of summer virtual art classes and workshops offered through Farmstead Arts Center.

Classes currently shown on our website were offered in the spring semester, and are provided to give visitors a sense of the types of classes we normally offer. Our fall semester catalog will be available on this website by August 26, and classes will begin at the end of September.  While a few classes will meet at private studios/offices where social distancing and cleaning protocols can be more easily monitored, the bulk of our fall classes will be offered in a virtual format.

Registration Fee Policy:  A non-refundable registration fee of $10 per person is due each semester (i.e. spring, fall). Each online registration incurs the $10 fee. If you have already paid the registration fee and wish to add additional classes, please call our office to avoid incurring a duplicate $10 charge. The Adult School will not reimburse duplicate registration fees. 

If registering for only one class that cost $10 or less, the registration fee will be waived if registration is done over the phone. Students who choose to register for these classes online will be charged the registration fee; no reimbursement will be provided. If additional classes are purchased during the same semester, regardless of the price of the classes, the registration fee will be charged. 

Refund Policy: NO REFUND will be given once a class has started.  The registration fee is non-refundable, but class cost will be reimbursed if student withdraws at least one week prior to the start of class.  For example, if class begins on a Monday, The Adult School must receive the withdrawal/refund request by midnight of the Sunday one week prior to the start date.  Refunds will be issued in the original form of payment, minus a $5 processing fee for each dropped class.

Closing Policy: In general, if the school district in which your classes are held is closed due to weather, all Adult School classes will be canceled in that location. All closings due to inclement weather will be announced on our website (www.theadultschool.org), or by calling the recorded message at 973-443-9222.  Instructors will make every effort to reschedule canceled classes. When registering for classes, please provide your contact information, including cell phone number and email address so that we may contact you in the event of an emergency closing other than bad weather.
