Lifelong Learning

  • German made easy

Charleston Area Lifelong Learning (CALL) provides an opportunity to go back into a classroom with your peers, to facilitate a class or just to learn. It’s a great way to make new friends.
You can choose to be on either side of the desk as experts share a lifetime of knowledge and experience with their peers.

Who We Are:

The Charleston Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL) is a program offered by the College of Charleston Center for Creative Retirement.

  • Our classes are peer-to-peer and meet online and/or in person at the College of Charleston’s Riley Center for Livable Communities, 176 Lockwood Boulevard, Charleston. Parking is plentiful and free.
  • Courses are online, in person, or a hybrid, i.e., a combination of both.
  • Classes meet weekly for anything from one to six weeks and are 90 minutes each, unless otherwise specified in the course description.
  • CALL offers fall, winter, and summer terms.
  • CALL participants pay $10 per course (a token amount to cover costs during the current pandemic).
  • Participants may register for any or all the courses offered that term. They will receive a confirmation with the time, place and a parking permit. If the course is offered online, they will also receive a Zoom link to that class.
  • As a peer-to-peer lifelong learning organization, we are always looking for facilitators with an interest or passion to share. We are now looking for a wide variety of courses for our Winter Term (Feb/Mar).
