Lifelong Learning

RappCE hopes to resume in-person lifelong learning classes in the fall of 2021.

In the meantime, watch for the debut of videos that will promote learning about our community.  The first one will help us all understand what it has been like to attend Rappahannock High School during the pandemic.

RappCE Lifelong Learning offers a wide-ranging selection of non-credit, just-for-fun classes taught by volunteer instructors. Held during Spring and Fall semesters, these classes generally cost $20 or $25 each and run for three to nine weeks in length. These courses are taught for avocational purposes only.

Classes are held at the RappCE facility located at 12018 Lee Highway in Sperryville (the Sperryville Schoolhouse)
as well as other sites spread throughout Rappahannock County.
