About Allendale Community Education

Allendale Community Education began in 1974 as a small evening program servicing adults in the area. It started with a few enrichment classes, two adult high school completion classes, and occasional youth classes. The purpose and goal of Community Education was to use all the expertise and resources of the community to meet the educational needs of the community. Also, there are no age barriers or limitations to learning. Learning should be a lifelong process beginning at birth and ending at death. Thus, Community Education programs evolved for all ages, at all times for the community.

On September 9, 1985, the Allendale Board of Education purchased the Allendale Farm Supply at 6633 Lake Michigan Drive. This building was transformed over several years to house many different programs. The programs changed as our community grew and its needs changed. All funds used in the renovation process came from funds generated by Community Education programs or grants. No general fund dollars were used in renovating the Center.

Allendale Community Education has provided programs to Allendale with a great sense of pride and fulfillment. Over the years, 443 people have received their diplomas or G.E.D. certificates and thousands have been enriched and grown through our leisure enrichment programs.
