Note from Our President

We are thrilled to be celebrating our 85th Anniversary this year, and we could ask for no greater gift than for you to invite a friend, neighbor, or family member to learn more about what we have to offer at The Adult School. Whether you have been taking classes with us for years, or are
just getting to know us, we offer our heartfelt thanks to you for being a vital part of our community. You have suggested ideas for trips and new classes, shared your personal connections so that we could expand our instructor base, enthusiastically embraced online learning which was a silver lining to the cloud of COVID shut-downs, and provided much needed financial assistance to help us keep The Adult School in business through the many challenges of these last few years. We are not out of
the woods yet, but we cannot thank you enough for your part in fulfilling our mission to provide lifelong learning to our community. 


With the Madison Civic Center now permanently closed, we no longer have a central office for our students to visit. Our staff will continue to work
from home and can be reached during normal business hours by phone (973-443-9222) or email ( If you know of a
possible office space, please be in touch with that information. As our search for a permanent home continues, our staff will continue to provide you with the excellent range of courses and services you have come to expect. 


We are so glad you are part of this ride and we look forward to our next

85 years of offering lifelong learning to the community!


For the Board,

V. H. Schumacher Ed.D.
