A classroom for all

by Tyler Vitt - Saturday, Jan 21, 2017 at 4:01pm

Why do we call our Community Classroom by that name? Because it's a classroom for the community, taught by the community.

All of our courses are open to adults of all ages (and many are open to children and teens). No pre-requisites are required — all you need is a desire to learn!

And all of our courses are led by local educators, people who are experts in their selected fields and many of whom have taught at the university or college level.

We offer a wide variety of classes across a world of subjects — health, art, music, film, politics, history, nature, Indigenous studies, literature, and more — at various times and days of the week, so there's sure to be something of interest to just about anyone. To see what classes are coming up, or to learn more about our Community Classroom, visit this page.

New Online Registration System for Community Classroom

by Barb King - Tuesday, Jun 24, 2014 at 2:27pm

Today marked the launching of McNally Robinson's brand new registration system for classes in the Community Classroom. Simple and pretty intuitive, the new system allows you to view all of the classes in either a chronological order (by date) or by category. From the comfort of your own home you can now register "live" in real time, knowing right at the time of registration, how many seats are left in the class. You will also have all of the information on the class, from a class description, to the schedule, to info on the price and info and a photo of the educator, all right at your fingertips.
