At Elderly Services Inc., an important part of our mission is to promote and encourage lifelong learning. In 2005 we started ESI College as a way to bring topics and information of interest to independent adults over age 60. ESI College requires only a thirst for knowledge and a curiosity about our world. Participation in our classes and seminars gives you the chance to learn from highly qualified professionals whose expertise in a subject makes learning interesting and entertaining. There are no tests, papers or grades at ESI College. There is a lot of informed discussion and camaraderie.

We offer four sessions per year: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Classes range from one hour lectures to a six-week program, and cover a full spectrum of interests: arts, history, literature, politics, sciences, and religion.

Classes take place at our beautiful facility located at 112 Exchange Street in Middlebury, Vt.

Take a course. Teach a course.
