Welcome to online registration for Acton-Boxborough Community Education! 

We are adapting many of our classes to take place online. There are classes for kids and teens and classes for adults. These pages will be updated as additional classes are scheduled. 

Please contact any member of our staff with questions. Thank you for your patience and support as we react to this unprecedented situation. 

For up-to-date info on all Comm. Ed. activities, please go to our website:  A-B Community Ed



If the class you are interested in says REGISTRATION ENDED please try calling the office to see if we can still take more students. Online registration usually closes the day a class begins. 

If you need assistance logging in or setting up and linking accounts for all of your family members, please call Jen McLean at 978-266-2525 or email her at

If you're looking for a class and can't find it, try searching by JUST a key word.  Leave other search choices blank.

Senior Rates:

If you are age 62 or older and seeking our senior rates, please contact us before registering for a class.  We will designate you as a senior and then any senior rates will appear when you search for class information.

Out of Town Fee:

Our system suggests that the additional fee for non-residents is "optional."  OUT OF TOWN FEES ARE REQUIRED ($4 per class) FOR ALL STUDENTS WHO DO NOT LIVE IN ACTON OR BOXBOROUGH.  We had hoped to make this automatic but there does not seem to be a solution.  We ask for your cooperation in adding those fees to your course as required.  We will be reviewing registrations and adding the $4 fee to any out of town registrations that omitted it.  

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Effective January 1, 2021, our refund policy will be as follows:
Refunds are given if either of the following occur:

• the class is canceled due to low enrollment
• the course requested is already full

Class withdrawals must be received at least 5 days prior to the class start date to receive a 90% refund, unless otherwise stated on the class description. No refunds or credits will be issued for cancellations received less than 5 days prior to the class start date. Some classes have unique cancellation policies; these are listed in the class description and supersede this general policy.

If a single session of a class is canceled, we will do our best to schedule a make-up session. No credit will be given for inability to attend a make-up session.
