Fox Chapel Area Adult Education will accept online registration for the first time this spring.

Fox Chapel Area Adult Education is embracing its future.

For the first time in its 55-year history, the program is offering online registration and payment for the spring semester, now under way.

“We are always looking for ways to make it easy for adults to have fun, improve their health or use their limited free time to learn,” Executive Director Susan Goodwin said.

Fox Chapel Area Adult Education (FCAAE) is an outreach program of Fox Chapel Area School District that aims to provide enrichment classes to adults at a low tuition.

Classes this season include an array of topics from portrait drawing, wines of Spain and chair TriYoga to pickleball and mosaic crafts.

The group spent years planning an update to its website that would simplify the registration process, Goodwin said.

“It’s wonderful to hear students, especially those who say they don’t feel comfortable using technology, tell me that it really does take just minutes,” she said. “Another great benefit is you know right away whether you have a seat in the class. It’s especially helpful when you want to take a class with friends and you can register as a group.”

Paper brochures were mailed last week, and mail-in registrations will continue to be accepted.

Most classes meet at Fox Chapel Area High School along Field Club Road. Sessions run one night to 10 weeks.

Swim classes and other favorites are returning to the roster, Goodwin said, including zentangle, conversational German, Buddhist meditation and line dancing.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
