PARIS – Oxford Hills Adult Education figures it offers something for just about everybody.

Whether it’s general interest classes, high school completion, college preparatory or vocational training, there are about 97 courses to choose from.

Then, there are 29 courses in the person skills category – varying from machine quilting to photography to woodworking.

Thirty-one courses are offered for people needing to finish their high school degree, and 27 job training courses from computer training to nursing assistant to truck driving are available.

There are 10 college prep courses, and 180 Interactive Television college courses offered.

This year, professors from Central Maine Community College, Andover College and the University of Maine System will present 11 courses for college credit.

Adult Education Director Judy Green said those interested in the college courses would be wise to sign up quickly.

She said people are taking more interest now in anticipation of the Western Maine University and Technical College’s opening, scheduled for January.

Green said Adult Ed has been offering college courses for years, using visiting professors and Interactive Television.

But this year the enrollments are larger than ever before.

“All five CMCC courses have enough to run,” Green said. “In years past, we might have offered four courses and two would fill up.”

Many of the courses begin Sept. 8.
