Community Education

Explore - Fun - Creativity - Adventure

College of the Siskiyous offers a diverse array of short-term courses in the areas of community interests. These courses are open to the entire community, are not-for-credit, fee based courses that are supported entirely by student fees.

Community Education offers the student countless ways to benefit from the experience and expertise of our instructors, industry specialists, artists, musicians and travelers alike who teach our classes. Classes are offered throughout the year and are scheduled based on availability of instructors and interested students.

The Community Education Program receives no public funding and is self-supported through class fees. A minimum enrollment must be reached in order for a class to run.

Some of the areas of interests we will be offering courses in are:

  • Arts and Crafts- XAC
  • Music and Theater- XMT
  • Drone Academy- XBC
  • Community Service- XCS
  • Fitness and Well-Being Nutrition, Yoga and Alternative Healing - XFW
