Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning

About CALL

Keene State College’s Institute for Learning in Retirement is the Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL). The CALL program is affiliated through the Institute Network with ELDERHOSTEL, now known as Road Scholar.

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 non-residential.

Our classes are lead by members, community experts, and Keene State faculty. CALL classes are offered for eight weeks in the fall and eight weeks in the spring, with a four-week "mini-session" offered in January and February. All classes are held on Fridays.
