Never Stop LearningThe Boston Center for Adult Education is the oldest nonprofit adult education center in New England. Founded in 1933, it quickly established itself as a cultural stomping ground where individuals could learn, discuss, create, and enjoy themselves.
Now, almost 80 years later, the BCAE continues its role as Greater Boston's leading provider of adult education, offering nearly 2,000 classes each year.
If you are looking to learn a new craft, we have the class for that. Check out our great art, photography, music, dance, theater & film, or our writing classes. Whether you want to brush up on your foreign language skills or prepare for a trip abroad, we have a language class that fits your needs. Want help in the kitchen? We have amazing, state-of-the-art kitchens where you can learn to cook or bake during a hands on class. Prefer to learn the art of tasting wine or mixing a cocktail? We have plenty of classes to get you started. Maybe you need to learn a new computer program for work. Take a computer class in our new lab.
Though the BCAE has evolved over the years, we have always stayed true to our mission: providing educational opportunities that foster personal and professional development, enhance a sense of community, and encourage social responsibility.
