CPR-ClassThe Nantucket Community School offers a wide-range of classes for Nantucket adults – focused on both professional development and personal enrichment. We understand that success in the 21st Century depends on the ability of adult learners to engage in the continuous upgrading of knowledge and skills.  We offer programs taught by experts in their fields – who possess a passion for their subjects and dedication to the best practices in Adult Education.   Our goal is to build a vibrant, responsive Adult Learning Community that allows Islanders to fulfill their educational needs while remaining here on Nantucket.  (for more information about Nantucket’s Adult Education needs, see the links to “Learn Without Leaving” assessment below)
