Welcome to Our Classrooms--All 50 Years of Them!

Since Fall of 1962, Fox Chapel Area Adult Education (FCAAE), an outreach program of the Fox Chapel Area School District, has provided enrichment classes to the community.  It is a non-profit organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors with the help of one employee, our Executive Director.  We operate two semesters: Fall (usually mid-September to mid-November) and Winter/Spring (usually mid-February to mid-April).  Classes have varying start dates.

Fall 2014 Registration Is Open
If you visit our website and the Fall 2014 class information is not showing, please refresh your browser window and if that doesn't work, clear your cache.  
Can I Register The Day Of The Class?  Yes, if there is space available.  If you contact the Executive Director by phone or email before 3 p.m. the day of the class, and provide your mailing address, home/cell/business phone numbers, and email address, she will pre-register you and you will not need to pay the additional $5 last minute registration fee.  If it is after 3 p.m. the day of the class, please go directly to class with your form/signed release/payment and be sure to add the $5 last minute registration fee to your class fee.  Please give this information to the Executive Director (or instructor if the ED is at another school opening classes). If you don't have a form, there will be extra copies in the room where your class is being held.

The Fall 2014 brochure was mailed on Monday, August 25th. Brochures were mailed to all residents of the Fox Chapel Area School District as well as non-residents who have taken one of our classes in the past 10 years. If you do not receive your brochure, please contact us but also contact your local post office and inform them of the delivery problem.  FCAAE collects a list of addresses where brochures were not delivered each semester and shares it with the appropriate post office but the Post Masters have indicated that they need to hear directly from the customer as well.  If you are not in one of these groups, and would like to be added to our mailing list, please send your mailing information to Susan Goodwin, Executive Director at director@fcaae.org. Also, an email alert is sent when the brochures are delivered to the post office. If you wish to receive an email notice, please provide your email address to director@fcaae.org.

Please Note:  The High School is currently under construction on a phased basis. The pool has been demolished and is in the process of being rebuilt. The cooking rooms are not available until early Winter 2015. Watch for your brochure to see all the new classes that are being offered instead.

While every effort will be made to adhere to the schedule as published, please be aware that circumstances beyond our control may necessitate the need for some last-minute classroom changes.
