District 214 Community Education's online registration is now open for the winter 2018 semester with 300 class offerings.
The classes highlight Community Education's mission to promote lifelong learning. Its programs align with community needs, workforce demands and current trends to provide all ages the opportunity to learn new skills, ignite a passion and engage with others.
"Community Education programs are designed to offer the opportunity for community members to connect with each other as well as refine a skill set or seek a new hobby," said Teresa Palaggi, Community Education's programming supervisor.
Classes are offered in 12 categories, including arts, culinary, fitness and athletics, health and wellness, languages, online learning, professional development and youth and family programs. New online courses, including classes in grant writing, customer service, data analysis, digital marketing, GRE preparation and more, will provide community members access to affordable and convenient learning opportunities.
New this semester is the addition of an off-site classroom in downtown Arlington Heights as a new location for classes geared toward young adults starting on their own. A variety of classes, such as Investing in Real Estate, First Time Home Buyer, Cupcake Decorating and more, will be offered at this location for individuals ages 21 and older.
Classes for the winter 2018 semester will begin Tuesday, Jan. 2, and end in March. The Winter 2018 Program Guide, scheduled to be delivered to District 214 residents this month, will also feature upcoming events at Forest View Educational Center and Community Education Travel and will highlight domestic destinations in 2018, including Los Angeles, Charleston, Asheville and New York City, and international destinations such as Chile and Easter Island, Portugal, Greece and many more.
