SPICE Programs

Enriching Experiences for Adult Learners

SPICE programs affirm life, stimulate the brain, help overcome social isolation, and invoke laughter.  The courses offered span the gamut of human interests — from music, politics, art, entertainment, history, technology, and the world around us.

Most courses meet in the mornings between 10:30 and Noon once a week. There is a charge for courses due to the varied and high caliber speakers that lead us.  

Registration Policies

  • All SPICE courses must be registered for and paid for in their entirety. Due to a new MD Sales Tax Regulation, we are now required to charge 6% sales tax on all courses delivered electronically.
  • All SPICE courses for 2021 will be presented on Zoom.
  • SPICE fees are per head, not per household, with a 50% off fee for second registrants within the same household.

  • Registration must completed the day before the first course session.
