Educational programs help seniors fulfill postponed dreams
(Page 2 - Previous Page)The SAGE program consists of three 10-week and one seven-week session per year, and is based on participation in study/discussion groups. Among the 14 subjects currently offered are: "Famous Violinists of the Past & Present," "Supreme Court Decisions" and "Censorship: It's Not Just Book Burning!"
Like PLATO, SAGE also offers occasional colloquia, an annual retreat and field trips to area museums, parks and libraries.
There are no prerequisites for SAGE membership. The annual fee is $225 for individuals and $400 for couples. Discussion groups meet in classrooms at the Episcopal Church of St. Andrew & St. Charles in Granada Hills.
