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, SSILL offers two semesters of daytime academic programs 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 prerequisites. However, no previous level of high school or college education is required to participate. All we require is your interest and enthusiasm.

SSILL was initiated by the Guilford and Madison Foundations, sponsored by Guilford Parks, Recreation & Seniors, and Madison Senior Services.

Membership and Cost

You must be a member of SSILL to sign up for programs. Registration is for September through June each year. Single Person $35.00 Married Couple $45.00
