About Our Program
Who We Serve
Our Adaptive Learning Community-Based Education program has earned recognition across the Peninsula and South Bay as a leading provider of non-credit leisure education, including drawing and painting, writing, stress reduction and more. Our instructors have a longstanding reputation for academic excellence, and they are committed to helping students succeed at every stage of adulthood.
Our mission is to emphasize inclusion and maximize the cognitive, physical, emotional and social potential for each individual. These lifelong learning classes are geared to individuals with disabilities and seniors in retirement, but are open to all adults.
Older Adults and Veterans with Disabilities
Our students range in the age of 55-95 years old or are disabled veterans who are in-patients or out-patients at the local Veterans Administration Medical Center in Palo Alto and Menlo Park.
The students' disabilities are often multiple and range from strokes, heart conditions, arthritis and diabetes to mobility, visual and hearing impairments. Additional disabilities may include brain and/or spine injury, orthopedic and psychological disabilities.
Staying Active and Involved
The program promotes the physical, intellectual and social well-being of these adults, by helping them to stay active and involved in community life.
To accomplish this goal, instruction and classroom activities are planned to meet student needs and interests. All classes are tailored to the capabilities of disabled adults.
