The Center for Creative Retirement (CCR) is composed of a diverse group of seniors who share an enthusiasm for education. This self-governing group holds weekly meetings throughout the academic year, and offers field trips to historical and cultural sites.

Members, who are considered non-credit students at the College of Charleston, are eligible for:
  • Weekly meetings from September through May
  • Smaller in-depth study groups
  • Some off-site meetings
  • CCR newsletters
  • Field trips to historical and cultural sites

The Charleston Academy for Lifelong Learning, which is part of the College of Charleston's Center for Creative Retirement, offers six week courses on wide-ranging topics such as The Aging Brain and Conversational German. The Winter term runs February 21 - April 4.

The Academy has also put together a Science Thursday course that offers Life in the Universe (aliens, anyone?), Physics for Humanities, and Amateur Astronomy.
