Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning

About CALL

Keene State College’s Institute for Lifelong Learning is the Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL). The CALL program is affiliated through the Institute Network with ELDERHOSTEL, now known as Road Scholar.  View a letter from Nancy Merz-Nordstrom, the Director of the Elderhostel Institute Network, to read more about this partnership.

CALL is an educational program aimed at seniors and/or retired folks. The difference between ROAD SCHOLAR and Institutes for Lifelong Learning like CALL is that our program is not residential. 

We offer a wide range of liberal arts courses at very low cost to participants.  Classes are lead by members, community experts, or Keene State faculty.CALL classes are offered for eight weeks in the fall and eight weeks in the spring.
