Cambridge Center for Adult Education

Cambridge Center for Adult Education (CCAE) provides high-quality, fun educational opportunities for the diverse adults of Greater Boston. Sign up today for a class in Cooking, Art, Music, Acting, ESL, French, Spanish, Wine & Spirits and more. For more than a century, the CCAE has provided an oasis of learning in Harvard Square. At CCAE, you can pursue your passions and interests in a welcoming community. Every year, more than 10,000 adults take classes here, looking for knowledge offered in an affordable, social setting and a safe, non-competitive atmosphere. 

Located in two historic buildings on Brattle Street - the William Brattle House (1727) and the Blacksmith House (1808) - CCAE is steps away from the Harvard Square T station, bus lines, and parking garages.
