Help Us Navigate The New Normal

Look back to 1955 where  our nonprofit started around the kitchen table of a West Chester resident. Jump forward to 2020, sixty-five years later. Chester County Night School now  provides over 400 lifelong learning enrichment classes to over 8000 adult students - the size of a small college.

We also give kids the same chance to have fun like our adult learners by offering after-school and summer enrichment programs. As part of this program, we offer scholarships to financially needy children.

Our tagline is “Providing lifelong learning for Ages 9 to 91.”  From computer classes, business and gardening  to dance, languages, history and trips/tours; there's something for everyone! 

The benchmark of our program is community sharing and the spirit of learning together. Due to Covid19, this hasn't been possible. We are turning to our beloved community for support. Any amount is appreciated and ALL donations are 100% tax deductible.

The 65 year commitment to our community earned CCNS the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce Community Service Award.

Please help us stay strong so that we can celebrate another 65 years of community lifelong learning!
