Academy of Lifelong Learning

All is a place where you can learn and make new friends!

Hi, my name is Lia Clarkson. And I am a passionate enthusiastic fan
of life-long learning. Here's my story. I lived in Austin, Texas for
forty years in the same house, with the same friends. I knew
everybody. I felt at home. I had my support system. I knew all my
doctors. I had the lady who
did my nails for 10-15 years. And suddenly I got a call from my
teen-aged
grandson. He says I need you. And I had to move to help him. I had
to move to the Woodlands. I left my home and everything in my late
70's and that's hard to do. And so what happed to me, is the
discovery of life-long learning. I found out that you don't stop
learning because you get old; you get old because you stop learning.
Because you lose your joy for the new; the discovery. I found classes
here that range from learning to play the Appalachian Dulcimer to
current events; and a discussion in a civil manner, with people whom
you may not agree with all the time, but they are intellectually
challenging and stimulating and the opportunity to sit and have that
kind of discussion is extraordinary. You can be a part of this too.
On August 18th the Lone Star College Montgomery is having an Open
House for the Academy of Life Long Learning. It will be held August
18th from 11 to 1 in Building B. Parking is available here on the
campus and you can sign up at that very moment. You can meet some
professors. You can meet and discuss some of the classes. And there are
no tests. There are no grades. It's just learning for the love of
learning.

• Parking passes are required and may be obtained from the police station located in the southeast corner of the ground level of the Montgomery Campus Parking Garage. For more information visit http://www.lonestar.edu/parking.htm.

The receipt will show a title that is 30 characters or less as allowed by the computer’s scheduling program, which may or may not be the exact title of the class. Please be sure to review your receipt carefully for the 5-digit (4-digit in summer) class number and location.

You will find step-by-step instruction in the opening pages of the Academy for Lifelong Learning catalog. Be aware that the system is designed for credit students, so you will need to limit your list of classes when registering online.

Q. Why am I told the class is full or closed and I know there will be empty seats?
The classrooms are assigned by the number of chairs in the room. We overbook by 20% to account for no-shows. If the class is closed we suggest you call back just before the class starts to see if there are any cancellations.
