This is what two past participants in Parents as Scholars (PaS)
have to say about the program:
“My two sons respect me for working so hard to go to college. They’ve gained renewed interest in their own school work as education has become a higher priority in our household. And I know that they are more likely to pursue their own college educations now.”
- 2009 PaS graduate
“I grew up in poverty and dropped out of high school at 16. I had a son at 17 and left an abusive marriage at 22. When I first started school I suffered through major social anxiety and depression. I felt like I just wasn’t smart enough. Now I’ve overcome my fears. I was named an outstanding senior when I graduated from the University of Southern Maine. Thanks to the Parents as Scholars program I now receive good pay and benefits and no longer must rely on services from the state.”
- 2006 PaS graduate

Registered in a class and not sure if it's going to run due to low enrollment?
Give us a call to see how many registrations are needed and then go to work! Talk it up to friends; co-workers; relatives; other members of a group you belong to. You can make a difference and avoid your own disappointment and others' when a class you really wanted to take gets cancelled.
If you and a group of your friends have an interest in a class you've seen in our brochure with a timeframe that doesn't work out, let us know of your interest and we will let you know if it is possible to create a new class and explain what it will take to do it.
A minimum number of participants is required for all classes
The decision to cancel a class must be made 2 business days before it starts (unless noted otherwise). If the minimum number hasn't been met - we have no choice but to cancel.
