Adult Enrichment Program

Adult Enrichment Program

Our enrichment program strives to provide members of our adult community with a variety of opportunities to engage in lifelong learning.  We offer courses to encourage healthy lifestyles, increase skills, pursue passions, and meet new people in a friendly environment.   We also offer trips to various theater productions; these events include transportation and lunches prior to the performance.

New Instructors Sought

Pearl River School District continually seeks new instructors for our adult enrichment program.  We are looking for experienced individuals with fresh ideas in a variety of areas.  We offer a Fall and Spring semester each school year.  The courses may consist of one or multiple sessions and last up-to 8 weeks in duration.  Classes are held Monday - Thursday, after school and evenings; we have no weekend classes.  Instructors are not permitted to use the classroom for personal gain or to solicit students as clients.  If interested in applying for our next semester, please complete a course proposal form and email, along with your resume, to muthigm@pearlriver.org or mail to our office at the address above.

Online Registration Process

Pearl River School District has switched to an online registration system called "MySchoolBucks". There is no more need to have to mail-in your registrations with individual checks!  MySchoolBucks provides an easier way to register for classes and adheres to the highest security standards.  Payments for classes and trips can be made via credit card, debit card or electronic check.

Mail-in registrations are no longer accepted. 

Follow the directions below to start your registration:

Registering Another Person

You may register another person for a class or trip under your account, although you will get charged for that transaction.  The  individual will need to reimburse you directly.  Just create a separate shopping cart item for each individual person attending a class; you can check out and pay altogether. 

If you do not wish to be charged for that person’s class, they will need to create their own MySchoolBucks account.

Cancellations

Refunds for Courses:  All offerings are subject to cancellation for insufficient enrollment.  Upon complete cancellation of a course by the district, a full refund will be credited within 3-5 business days to your payment choice.  If an individual class is cancelled due to inclement weather, emergency closing, or instructor unavailability, we may make-up that one class. 
 
Tuition fees can refunded through "MySchoolBucks" only if the cancellation is made prior to the first class. Tuition fees, in whole or part, will not be refunded once the course has begun. 

Refunds for Trips:  Expenses are incurred in advance for many of our trips that will not be refunded by the venue.  If we have a waiting list, or can substitute your attendance and not incur expenses to the district, your registration fees will be refunded less a $25 cancellation fee.  If we cannot find a replacement for you, you will forfeit your entire registration fee - please do not sign up for a trip if you are not sure you can attend.  In addition, please do not give your ticket to another individual without contacting our office first to see if we have a wait list.
