Lifelong Learning

Exploration and discovery are a vital part of living well and play a key role in healthy aging. In fact, studies show that people who stay stimulated intellectually throughout life are typically happier and healthier. Residents of Fort Scott Presbyterian Village routinely participate in a variety of activities that keep them actively engaged in the community and the world as part of our program of lifelong learning.

  • We host monthly programs on a wide range of topics presented by representatives of the local college, business owners, government officials and others.
  • Residents may take advantage of college classes offered free by Fort Scott Community College.
  • We hold watercolor art class every other month.
