UPDATE: School closed through the end of the school year 2020

Update 4/22/2020– The Governor has closed all Massachusetts Public schools for the remainder of this academic year.  We are in the process of rescheduling and/or canceling classes as follows:

  • Classes that were running before the shutdown occurred-  If it is possible we will finish these classes via video conferencing/online learning platforms.
  • Classes that were scheduled to start after the March 13, 2020 shutdown of the school will either be offered via video conferencing/online learning platforms or cancelled.

Please watch your email for updates about your particular class.  We hope to have the information about each class out to you by the end of next week.  We thank you again for your patience during these unprecedented times and look forward to serving you again in the future.  Stay well and be safe.


No Adult Education Classes through May 4, 2020

Tri-County will be closed until May 4, 2020 so there will be no Adult Education classes held during that time due to the Coronavirus.  The school is currently being disinfected again for precautionary measures at this time.  Since the school building is closed we will be doing our best to manage the situation and communicate with you offsite.  Durring this time the best way to reach us will be via email.  You are all aware that this is a very fluid situation and we will do our best to keep you appraised of the situation through the website and email.  If you are currently enrolled in an ongoing class or are enrolled in a class about to start please check your email for updates as they pertain to your specific situation.

UPDATED Information

3/25/2020 – All schools in Massachusetts are now closed until May 4, 2020.  This announcement was just made this afternoon.  We are assessing the situation and are awaiting additional guidance from the state before we make any firm commitments on how we proceed.  We know this is difficult on everyone and we will put together plans over the next couple of days on how we proceed.  Keep an eye on this website and your email for further guidance.  We thank you for your patience and remind you all to maintain social distancing and wash your hands.

We believe learning is a lifelong journey. For those who share that philosophy, Tri-County offers various adult education programs for all interests. Those looking to advance their careers might be interested in our postsecondary programs, which include nursing and cosmetology. We also offer various licensing and certification courses in areas such as OSHA construction safety. For those just looking to have a little fun, take a look at our many cooking, dance, and leisure classes.

For the Current Course Catalog

I have been participating in Tri-County’s Zumba fitness program for a few years now. Every class is a fun and energetic dance party, and it doesn’t even feel like exercise!”
