A Message About Winter Classes

With the ever-changing nature of COVID-19, CCAE staff and instructors have been working tirelessly to ensure that we are still able to offer high quality adult education classes. As such, we have made the decision to offer all winter term classes online.

We are excited to offer over 300 online classes, including 85 new offerings, and are looking forward to bringing warmth, fun, and learning to you all winter long!

Being able to come together, even online, is essential for keeping a healthy, connected community. We are looking forward to continuing our online learning with you while staying home and staying safe in the new year!

Our hours of operation can be found here. Registrations can be made online at any time and CCAE staff can be reached at 617-547-6789 ext. 1 or info@ccae.org.

Thank you for all of your support!

CCAE Winter 2021 Catalog Cover

“I had such a fun time learning about all the different types and techniques for making them. It was also a great way for me to connect with my friends for a fun virtual night together when we’re not able to see each other due to COVID.”

Anneli F., Argentinian and Chilean Empanadas

"I was amazed at how well Zoom worked for French. Absolutely amazed. I spent my 2 years of high school French mentally hiding under the desk and can state, absolutely, that this is not possible with Zoom! CCAE did a good job of Zoom education on its tools and Mélanie [Huguet] was good at reminding students to mute or unmute or other helpful (to all) requests."

J Dayne L., The Three Groups of French Verbs

"Elizabeth [Merrick]'s knowledge and enthusiasm were evident throughout the presentation - quite a feat with Zoom. She seemed genuinely pleased to share her knowledge."

Michelle M., Boston's History Told Through Houses of Worship

"I appreciated the openness and interactive nature of the class. Dan [Paret] was wonderful to offer an extra class and help with questions. This class was one my few regular commitments during the COVID spring months and really looked forward to it."

Rebecca B., Woodcarving: Demo and Questions
