“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” – Henry Ford

Orange Academy online noncredit courses offer high engagement learning opportunities in a low stress academic environment for adults and high school students to pursue a passion or interest. These low-stakes and low-cost experiences include one 90-minute weekly synchronous class where students connect with the instructor and each other. Students are assigned additional readings, viewings, and assignments to do each week on their own which help inform the next synchronous class session. Most seminars and workshops are 4 weeks in length and all are graded and transcripted with ‘CA’ for Completed Attendance.

There are no exams, graded papers or prerequisites for Orange Academy courses, giving you the opportunity to advance your knowledge in a welcoming and undemanding setting.
