Don't let the word "college" scare you. Are you over 50 and looking for an intellectual and social outlet? A place where you can meet other vibrant and interesting people, learn something new, and have fun? At York County Senior College you can partake of lifelong learning by taking any of a variety of classes designed to meet your interests. Choose from a diverse array of courses.

The Senior College program, not unique to Maine, was once cited in a major magazine as "the reason to retire to Maine." York County Senior College offers three locations for classes and sociability—Alfred, Saco, and Springvale.

We welcome you to join us in this fulfilling educational and social experience.
