Academy of Lifelong Learning

The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Washington College is designed for those who believe learning is wonderful at any age! WC-ALL is a peer-led, self-supported autonomous department of the College that was created for adults who seek intellectual stimulation without the requirements for academic credit - learning for the joy of learning.

Welcome to WC-ALL!

OUR MISSION: Each College semester the Academy of Lifelong Learning offers two six-week sessions with 12-15 courses each session; approximately 400 Eastern Shore residents become members and register for as many courses as they wish, for one all-inclusive membership fee.

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS: Please note that each WC-ALL member attending an in-person event (class or Learn at Lunch, etc.) is required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Masks are currently required indoors for everyone due to the presence of the Delta variant. That policy is subject to change. Also, the instructor will be taking attendance at in-person classes every week. This is required for contact tracing should that become necessary. Washington College’s COVID protocols guide ours, and if for any reason adjustments need to be made during the semester those changes will be communicated to our membership via email and on the website.
