ACE teacher and student are included in a great New York Times article about life after retirement.  The article features the retirement journey of ACE student Guy Johnson, who took Debbie Grovum’s classes Finding Your Encore Career and Create a Beautiful Life.  Mr. Johnson, like so many others, turned to ACE to help with the intangibles of retirement planning:  developing new connections and interests that add value to life.   Enjoy reading this informative article here:

Remember, ACE can help you find and develop new interests that feed your passion – whether that’s painting, writing, dancing, tennis or technology.  With affordable prices and convenient scheduling, ACE allows you to try out a wide variety of interests.  Perhaps you’ve always wanted to speak Spanish, or delve into baking.  Whatever it is, chances are that ACE has classes that fit your needs.  Hope you join us this fall!

ACE: A Wonderful Resource!

I recently had the good fortune to take an Alaskan cruise, which afforded me the opportunity to dine and visit with folks from all over the world. During the normal course of conversation, the usual topic of occupation arose.  Again and again, people were astounded to learn of the large adult enrichment program offered by our school district.  Most expressed chagrin at the lack of such a wonderful resource in their own back yard.

With enrollment topping 12,000 this year, it was exciting to describe our classes and our students:  a wide array of classes that attracts those who are lifelong learners.   The Sarasota area attracts highly qualified individuals who want to share their passion as well as those who want to keep expanding their horizons and to stay relevant.   The experience left me with a great appreciation for our teachers, our students, and a school district that is willing to dedicate such superb space for ACE classes at SCTI.

Sit back and take your time as you look through our offerings. Then stop by or pick up the phone to start or continue your own lifelong journey of learning!
