What is Community Education?

Our Mission, as a combined effort of community resources, is to provide lifelong educational opportunities for every citizen in the Whitley County community. With lifelong learning as its cornerstone, community education provides a systematic way for the entire community to work together to solve community problems.

bullet Parents, especially, should be intimately involved in the learning process of their children-both in the school setting and at home.
