Community Education

L.I.F.E. Courses

Learning is Forever Enriching (L.I.F.E.) is a program that offers educational and social opportunities to those age 55 and over.

Courses are held during daytime hours at the Mount’s beautiful Desmond Campus in Balmville, NY. These courses are taught by L.I.F.E. members, Mount faculty, or volunteers from the community. Because instructors volunteer their time, course fees are very reasonable. Fees are $50 for the first full-length course and $30 each for any additional full-lenth courses. The fees for short courses vary but are never more than $25 per course. Courses are offered on a wide variety of subjects and vary greatly from session to session.
