THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Are you 50-years-old or older and looking for unique way to stay active and engaged in retirement or semi-retirement?

Discover the only Lifelong Learning Institute in north Houston.

The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College-Montgomery will host an open house Saturday, Aug. 12, from 11 a.m.-1p.m. downstairs in the Atrium of the Health Science Center (building B).

“ALL helps adults in the area keep learning and stay connected close to home,” said Steven Gorman, ALL program manager at LSC-Montgomery. “ALL encourages a sense of community and camaraderie. At the open house attendees can meet instructors and socialize with other members.”

ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars and discussions.

Classes cover a variety of topics such as art, computer technology, personal growth, languages, history, travel, and more at a fraction of the cost.

A small annual membership fee of $35 allows members to take ALL courses free of charge and use the services of LSC-Montgomery, including the Student Tutoring and Research (STAR) Center, the library, Internet access and theater activities.

The annual membership lasts from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31.

Each of the six colleges within Lone Star College offers continuing education for older, active adults through the ALL organization.

Course offerings and program events vary with each campus.

You can choose to join all six campuses’ ALL Programs for only $55.

ALL class topics are proposed and taught by members, retired and active faculty volunteers, and outside experts.

The combined years of real-life experience elevate the intellectual discourse of the classes.

Members can also participate in social activities with other older, active adults and share their joy of learning together.
