We offer 100 classes each year ranging from history and music to art and science. Our classes are for personal enrichment and are about 1-1/2 hours long.

The classes are led by university professors, former professors, and specialists in a variety of fields. Classes are held at Pacifica Senior Living of Poway (Formerly The Gateway) at 12751Gateway Park Road, Poway, CA 92064. Most classes cost $8 and all classes are also offered simultaneously via Zoom.

About Us

The Continuing Education Center at Rancho Bernardo is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1978. For our first 25 years we were part of San Diego State University's Extended Studies Department. In 2003, we became a free-standing, non-profit organization offering 100 classes a year for personal enrichment. 

CEC is a non-sectarian and apolitical organization. We offer a platform for the exchange of ideas and do not endorse the views of those who speak in our classes.

Our classes are taught by university professors, retired professors, and experts in various fields. 

As with most non-profit organizations, about two-thirds of our operating funds are derived from the generosity of donors. We can't do it without you. Thanks. 

Annual memberships are available for $30 for one person and $50 for a family. Sustaining memberships include free classes for the year and cost $200 for one person and $250 for a family. If you would like to join CEC and support our good works, and save money at the same time, just mail a check to: The Continuing Education Center at RB" to the address below.
