Brookline Adult & Community Education (BA&CE) is one of the oldest non-credit, public education programs in Massachusetts. Adult education has been a part of the Brookline community since 1832, beginning with the formation of the Brookline Lyceum Society. It is now the largest public program in the state, with close to 1,800 courses and over 20,000 enrollments annually. Today, BA&CE is the hub of an educational network serving residents from more than 50 neighboring communities in the greater Boston area and beyond. A self-supporting program of the Brookline public schools, BA&CE's operating budget is funded entirely from course fees.Through its proud tradition of public schooling, the "business" of Brookline has always been education. The Brookline Public Schools has built on this tradition, expanding the concept of public education to serve the many different constituencies which make up Brookline and its larger community. BA&CE fulfills its mission by providing service to the community and enlisting its support for public education. As partners with the schools in a common purpose, BA&CE is committed to offering lifelong educational opportunity to all: newcomers to the United States, working people and professionals, those in transition or career change, older citizens, persons with special needs, and especially to those who have not been able to participate fully in the educational process. BA&CE is also dedicated to supporting public education by creating and providing opportunities for innovation and flexibility in the school curriculum. By offering programs that bridge the generations, the Brookline Public Schools seeks to unite the community in a common purpose --- educating for the improvement of the quality of life for all its members.
