Higher Learning Classes for Older Adults

Select courses previously offered by San Francisco City College to promote lifelong learning for older adults will now be hosted by community and senior centers in partnership with HSA. These college-level courses, now called Higher Learning classes, are made possible by our Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS) Dignity Fund.

Higher Learning classes may no longer operate on the City College semester calendar. See below for current course offerings. For more information and to register, call or visit the host centers. For general questions, contact DAS at 415-355-6700.
