LEARNING AND KNOWLEDGE
Learning is the core of the Rath ConNEXTions Center. Senior Scholars offers lifelong learning in a congenial atmosphere. Knowledge is combined with lively discussions with teachers and coaches. Classes are 2 hours, once a week, for 6 weeks. They are taught twice a year, usually in February (Spring) and October (Fall), and tuition is only $50 per class.
Due to Covid-19 concerns, the 2020 Fall Semester and 2021 Spring Semester were both canceled. In March of 2021, we provided a series of Zoom classes, at no charge.
However, things are looking good for the possibility for in-person Senior Scholars classes in March 2022 and running into April 2022. Information will be posted here as it is available.
If you would like to be updated when new class information is available, please leave a Comment in the box below, and we will provide email updates to include information for registration as the class schedule is complete.
