Welcome to Elkhart Community Education

Welcome to Elkhart Community Schools’ Community Education!

The mission of Elkhart Community Education is to provide educational opportunities that meet the needs of adult learners within Elkhart and the surrounding area. For some, those needs take the form of obtaining a diploma or improving English language skills. Others have a need to learn a new language or pursue a hobby or interest. And many who commit to furthering their education do so to learn new skills and expand employment opportunities. Whatever the need, we’re confident you will find a class at Elkhart Community Education that will be your next positive step.

-William Patterson, Program Manager for Community Education
