A Message About Fall 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 transitioned many of our classes online. This fall, in addition to online classes, we are excited to offer a selection of in-person classes.

We are taking precautions to ensure the safety of students, instructors, staff, and models who enter our buildings through both physical distancing and hygienic measures. We have outlined the steps we have taken as well as guidelines for students attending in-person classes.

Now, more than ever, being able to come together, is essential for maintaining a healthy, connected community. We are excited for these opportunities to connect with students from our community and around the world.

Our hours of operation are weekdays from 9am - 8pm. Registrations can still be made online at any time or you can contact us at 617-547-6789 ext. 1 and info@ccae.org during this time. These times are subject to change as we begin to offer limited in-person classes this fall.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

“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 with 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
