Welcome to Encore, Orange County Community College's day program for lifelong learners, 55 years and older. Some of those very learners are pictured above ---caught in lively conversation, question asking, and document analysis. Now in its second decade, Encore challenges lifelong learners to "Imagine; explore; grow" through a variety of learning opportunities. These include:

  • Short courses.
  • Special events, like the annual Members' Meeting.
  • Travel-learn trips.

Each semester, exciting courses, special events and travel-learn opportunities like our visits to Saratoga Center for the Performing Arts, Bard's Summerscape, the Thomas Edison Estate and Laboratory, the National Parks Railroad Museum in Scranton and the Museum at Bethel Woods are available.
