Customized Training & SolutionS 

Any way. Anywhere. Anytime. 


Community Education is still here for you, remotely! Despite the uncertainties created by COVID-19, we're working hard to offer you professional- and personal-development classes you can take safely, now and throughout summer 2020.

  • While we have had to cancel several of our in-person classes scheduled through June 30, we have converted many of them to an online format. Please check your email for updates and cancellations, and visit for new classes you can select right now.
  • Our College for Kids and Summer Discovery camps also have been canceled. We still plan to offer our year-round youth classes and look forward to the return of these camps in summer 2021. Please check out for upcoming youth opportunities.

We value your support and appreciate your understanding and patience as we develop new programs in an ever-changing environment. To reach us, please email, or call 217/351-2235 and leave a message, and we will return your call.
