Community Education Program

In our Continuing Education Program, we offer several affordable non-credit classes that encourage community members in Danville and the surrounding area to explore "interest" topics that enrich their lives. We have a variety of classes that allow participants to interact with Averett faculty and staff in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere.   No pressure to study - only freedom to enjoy and learn.
