Message from the Director

  • South St. Paul Community Education provides quality lifelong learning opportunities for every member of our community. What better time to learn new skills and broaden your life than the present? You will meet new people, learn something you didn’t know before and make your world a more interesting place. I have been a part of South St. Paul Community Education twenty years in a variety of positions. Personally, I believe strongly in the community education philosophy and am an avid lifelong learner.

    If you are an individual, local organization, or business that is interested in bettering our community through community education, please contact our office. We are always looking for new class offerings for the South St. Paul community.

    What Exactly is Community Education?

    Community Education is exactly what its name implies -a way for community members, schools, local businesses and organizations to come together to become active partners in addressing community education concerns. In other words, Community Education provides educational resources that help people from newborns through adults of all ages raise the quality of life in their communities.

    Mission Statement

    South St. Paul Community Education provides inspiring and motivating high quality opportunities for lifelong learning, leadership development and citizen engagement while advancing equity and eliminating disparities for all in the community.
