Classes Canceled for Fall 2021

We regret to announce that the Anacortes Senior College is canceling classes for the Fall 2021 term due to the continued effects of the COVID 19 pandemic. The all-volunteer board continues to monitor the situation and hopes to resume classes in January for the Winter 2022 term.

We will continue to update this page with information about the resumption of classes, so please check this website regularly. We look forward to providing our community with engaging learning opportunities soon!

Since 2007 the Anacortes Senior College has provided a curriculum of intellectually satisfying programs for people age 50 and above, led by retired professors and other instructors volunteering their time and expertise. With no required books, tests or credits, and a nominal fee for classes, students participate for the sheer joy of learning while meeting other curious students along the way.

About Senior College

We provide a curriculum of intellectually satisfying programs for people over the age of 50.

All of our instructors donate their time in order to give us, their students, the ultimate senior college experience.  To all of them, we say, “thank you”.

At the end of 12 years of operation, ASC class enrollments exceed 6,500. We continually look forward to providing you with a variety of interesting, meaningful and fun courses.

At Senior College we strive to make attending class an enjoyable experience for our students. Because we do not have books, tests or credit, we take the fear out of coming to class. We encourage students to listen to the instructor, engage in class discussion, and socialize with fellow students during the break.

Anacortes Senior College began in the Spring of 2007. We were fortunate to partner with the Anacortes School District, which allows us to use the classrooms in the Middle School. Our age 50+ students have access to retired professors and other qualified instructors who come forward to share their knowledge.
