Covid Update:
Governor Tim Walz announced Executive Order 20-81 which requires Minnesotans to wear a face covering in all public indoor spaces and indoor businesses. This Executive Order applies to all Minnesotans, making exemptions for children who are five-years-old and under, and those with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that makes it unreasonable for the individual to maintain a face covering.

If you have any questions or concerns on how this might impact a program you are attending, please feel free to reach out to us at 651-385-4565.

We invite you to become involved in the community by enrolling in Community Education and Recreation programs. Programs are designed to offer diverse opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people, and just have fun!

Mission Statement
Community Education opens the door of education by providing comprehensive life-long learning and enrichment opportunities for all ages.


Community Education Beliefs

  • Learning is a life long process.
  • Education is best accomplished through a comprehensive integrated learning system.
  • Each community member is both a learner in the system and a resource to it.
  • Community Education should act as a catalyst, assisting communities to both envision and create learning systems in such areas as educational, social, economic, physical, and recreational.
