WELCOME to the Academy for Lifelong Learning

Aiken, South Carolina


The Academy for Lifelong Learning is a volunteer-run organization under the auspices of the University of South Carolina Aiken that provides Seniors in the Aiken, SC area with a wide range of learning opportunities tailored to their needs and interests. From its modest beginnings in 1989, the Academy has evolved into a multifaceted program that provides a wide range of learning opportunities for area Seniors.  Each semester the Academy offers short courses and events covering a broad span of interests, ranging from art, music, literature, and science to hobbies, cooking, current events, religion, and both local and broader ranging history.
The Spring 2015 term is nearly completed, but there are exciting plans being put together for the Fall 2015 term.  The Fall 2015 catalog will be published in August and will be found on our  catalog page as soon as it becomes available. 


To enroll for the Fall 2015 term, print out the Enrollment form found in the Fall 2015 catalog when it becomes available, and submit it with your payment to the address on the form.
