About Us

Dear Community Members,

We are pleased to continue the District 214 Community Education tradition of excellence.  I encourage you to peruse our offerings for the start of 2019.  Whether you are looking to explore a new destination via Community Education Travel or enjoy a new hobby, our dedicated team is here to assist you to discover your next adventure. 

In cultural and performing arts, we hope you will join us in January when we welcome the best Rolling Stones tribute band in the Midwest. This is part of  our new Concert Series at Forest View that we launched in October with a very successful first concert. For more on the upcoming concerts in the series, go to pages 50 and 51.  

In travel, we recently announced our new Day Trip schedule for the first half of 2019. Aside from exploring Downtown Chicago, the greater Illinois area, Wisconsin and Indiana, we also have lined up exciting motorcoach tours and extended air packages in the U.S. and around the world. Join us on an eight-day Holland Tulip River Cruise in the spring of 2019 and enjoy our full-service group experience. Be sure to check out our featured destinations on pages 12 and 13.

We have put together an impressive array of enriching classes for the winter session that starts on January 7. New classes include Boxing CardioFusion, Parent Child Yoga, Comic Books 101, plant-based cooking, several Children’s Theater shows, a class on poetry, a number of free classes and many more.

If you are 62 years of age or older and a resident of District 214, make sure you sign up for a free District 214 Community Education Gold Card. Being a member entitles you to a discount on tuition for selected classes and tickets to the Concert Series, and free admission to some of our high schools’ performances and athletic events. Call the Community Education office to register.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have new program ideas or would like to join our team as an instructor to share your expertise with your community.
