Continuing Education

The correspondence courses of the Continuing Education Program offer students the opportunity to do independent study, working at their own pace. This program is available to assist students by providing optional learning experiences that will help them develop their personal journey path through life. 

 We are on a continuous journey, and it’s important to expand through learning, to figure out who and what we are. It’s not just self-exploration, but incorporating others’ ideas and concepts. It’s about community, the growing together through the exchange of those ideas and concepts. Because of the importance of this work, mentorship is a vital part of this program. We welcome everybody who wants to make this journey with us!
