Learning institutions team to offer continuing education programs in Spa City

QUEENSBURY, New York (May 3, 2022) — SUNY Adirondack and Saratoga Springs City School District are pleased to announce a new partnership to offer continuing education and lifelong learning opportunities to the greater Saratoga Springs community. 

The two institutions will offer details at an event at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 11, at SUNY Adirondack Saratoga, 696 Route 9 in Wilton. The public is invited to attend this free event. 
SUNY Adirondack has a thriving Continuing Education division, as did Saratoga until the latter’s broadly supported offerings were shuttered in 2019.

Partnering with SUNY Adirondack’s long-standing, successful program will bring back new and past courses and instructors to Saratoga Springs residents at Saratoga Springs City School District and community sites, as well as at SUNY Adirondack’s Saratoga facility. 

The new Continuing Education program will begin in Fall 2022, offering classes for such varied interests as cooking, fitness, arts, languages and trips and tours throughout the region. Course proposals from interested instructors, businesses and tour sites are welcome. 

“We are so excited to partner with the school district to offer lifelong learning opportunities to the Saratoga Springs community at fantastic facilities,” said Caelynn Prylo, assistant dean for Continuing Education and Workforce Innovation at the college. “SUNY Adirondack has been Saratoga’s community college for 45 years and now we are thrilled to work with students of all ages through this new program.” 

A catalog of course offerings will be released in August 2022 and mailed to homes within the Saratoga Springs City School District, as well as be available on SUNY Adirondack’s website. 

"The Saratoga Springs City School District is thrilled to expand our partnership with SUNY Adirondack by offering continuing education courses right here in our school community," said Michael Patton, superintendent of schools. "As a result of this collaborative effort, we hope our community members will take advantage of the robust programs and unique continuing education courses SUNY Adirondack will be able to offer in our local schools. We are excited to promote lifelong learning for all our district stakeholders."

Courses will be affordably priced and range from single sessions to multiple weeks, including the popular drop-in recreational sports opportunities offered in the past. 

SUNY Adirondack’s Office of Continuing Education offers non-credit courses for people from ages 7 to 97, creating endless possibilities for learning. The programs include workforce training, online courses, personal and youth enrichment, and outdoor education.
