ALI, a non-profit organization in Chelsea, MI, plans a wide range of educational courses to meet the interests and requests of our adult learners for winter/spring and fall terms. As always, our experienced instructors create a relaxed learning environment where students can ask questions, share experiences or just sit and listen. And there is no homework!
Registration is by mail only for this winter/spring's courses. The Winter/Spring Courses page lists the 2013 courses. You will also find a printable registration form, calendar and catalog there. Several interesting classes are still open.
