The SSILL Mission

The Schiller Shoreline Institute for Lifelong Learning’s (SSILL) primary mission is to offer meaningful, intellectual programs to area adults who share a love of learning and would enjoy a few hours of intellectual stimulation and socializing. Affiliated with the Road Scholar Network, and initiated by Paula Schiller, SSILL offers two semesters of daytime academic pro-grams designed to suit varied interests. All instructors and team leaders are unpaid volunteers. Our objective is to offer college-level classes without concern for credit, grades or pre-requisites. No previous level of high school or college is required to participate. All we require is your interest and enthusiasm.

Membership and Cost

You must be a member of SSILL to sign up for programs. Registration is for September through June each year.
