Register now for adult and community learning courses!

If you think you know what adult education is, take a look at what Manchester has to offer. Manchester Adult and Community Learning is still accepting new students. Earning credit in courses such as economics, biology and algebra to achieve a traditional high school diploma is an option, as well as language classes for students who don’t speak English. But several new programs take an interesting approach to the standards, and they’re open to anyone in the community who want to sign up.

“Forbidden Fiction” is an English course focusing on literature previously banned or challenged in schools. The class meets on Tuesday nights. Wednesday night’s “Creative Non-fiction” will introduce students to memoirs and other ways books engage readers with information. “The Untouchables,” also meeting on Wednesdays, investigates the most infamous criminals in American history. Conversational Spanish and a course on classroom-focused Microsoft applications round out the offerings for this school year. “Microsoft Office for the Workplace,” for those who need to sharpen their skills in business, will begin later this fall.

All classes are held at Central High School. The full schedule and registration information can be found online at http://macl.mansd.org/enrichment. Interested students also can call (603) 624-6300 x195.
