Lexington Community Education
Do I contradict myself? Very well then....I contradict myself; I am large....I contain multitudes.

Who We Are:
LCE is a self-sustaining, integral part of the Lexington Public Schools, committed to bringing lifelong learning to all. We provide practical, creative, and fun educational opportunities at reasonable cost. We seek to provide the best teachers and the most engaging subjects. Our programs are open to all adults and young adults, regardless of residency. We also offer an extensive summer children's program called LEXPLORATIONS, which offers creative and academic classes.

You do not need to be a resident of Lexington to enroll in our classes.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL CLASSES. You may register for classes either BY MAIL or IN PERSON at the LCE office at Lexington High School. Please use the registration form found on the last page of the catalog, or print one from this website. LCE accepts either checks, MasterCard, Visa or cash for tuition payment.

LCE offers a wide variety of programs for people of all ages. We have adult education programs in the Fall, Winter and Spring. The Fall semester begins at the end of September and runs through December. Winter classes begin at the end of January, and run through March. Spring programs begin mid or late April and run through June. There are no adult classes offered during July and August. The LEXPLORATIONS program runs for five weeks in July.

In the summer, we have a unique children's program called LEXPLORATIONS. This program is five separate weeks of exciting classes for children in grades K through 12 in the daytime from 9 AM till 3 PM. Early drop-off and extended day options are also available. Taught by Lexington public school teachers, these classes offer academic and cultural enrichment on such topics as drama, science, math, the arts, sports, and much more. Class sizes are very small and the emphasis is on the joy of learning. Each one week program costs approximately $280. The summer catalog is mailed to all Lexington residents and past students around mid-February. There is NO RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT for this program.

We are always looking for exciting new topics and talented teachers. If you are interested in teaching for our adult program, please call us and request a proposal application.

THERE IS NO RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT for our classes. All LCE programs are open to all interested learners. Our senior students are 65 years old or older and receive reduced tuition for almost all programs. Also, all employees of the Town of Lexington get a discount on most tuitions.
