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, is offering a four-week Summer Term during the month of June (6/3 to 6/26).

Light summer courses include Hands-On Aerodynamics (paper airplanes and kites, anyone?), Hitchcock films, Photography tips from shooting to framing, T'ai Chi Basics and more.

A self-professed political junkie will facilitate a discussion of the week's news and one of the center's most prolific writers is offering a writer's workshop. There will also be a two-session mini-course (June 6 & 13) on the Barnes Museum and "The Art of the Steal." Dr. Alfred Barnes died leaving a collection valued at $25 billion. This is the story of what transpired in the wake of his death.
