Lifelong Learning

MxCC offers a wide variety of personal enrichment courses in many different topics and interests. Courses are presented at various locations over the years for ages ranging from school-age students to seniors. Programs and courses are offered in the classroom and online. There are also two seniors enrichment programs—MILE and CCALC—at the Middletown campus and in Meriden.

MILE (Seniors – Middletown Area)

The Middlesex Institute for Lifelong Education (MILE) is a group of adults (age 50+) interested in expanding their knowledge by attending a program of diverse offerings. Most courses are held on the Middletown campus, and programs are enhanced by field trips. Middlesex Community College founded the group in 1993 and still acts as its sponsor.

MILE classes take place during the fall (October to November) and spring (March to April) semesters. For only $75/year, members are entitled to attend as many MILE courses as they choose. Contact MILE at 860-343-5863, by email at, or by visiting their website. Read about their 25th anniversary in 2018.

CCALC (Seniors – Meriden Area)

The Castle Craig Adult Learning Center (CCALC) is for (mostly retired) adult learners who are interested in expanding their levels of knowledge with a unique program of course offerings during the fall and spring.

Middlesex Community College founded this organization in 1999 and continues to sponsor the group. Classes are primarily held at the Meriden Public Library.
