Education for Older Adults


SCOSA's Older Adult Education, Socialization and Recreation Programs and Stockton Institute for Lifelong Learning Programs are being offered online via Zoom until further notice. SCOSA adheres to Stockton procedures for this evolving public health situation. CLICK HERE for the latest from Stockton.  Older adults or people at risk of serious illness are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines (CLICK HERE). The main CDC COVID-19 site (CLICK HERE) provides useful information for everyone.

SCOSA offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for older adults.  By bringing seniors to Stockton, and by "bringing Stockton to you", we hope to encourage vitality through physical, intellectual, and spiritual stimulation.

Some SCOSA programs are partially funded under Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, through a grant by the Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services. As a result of this contract we must collect some basic demographic information from our participants and we appreciate their onging assistance in this regard.  The NJ Division of Aging Services also compells us to inform our participants about the Division's Privacy Policy and Non-Discrimination Policy. Both can be reviewed by Clicking Here.

You may make voluntary donations to SCOSA. Such donations are not a fee and are not required. Donations received will be used to develop and operate future programs. If you wish to donate directly to SCOSA please make your checks payable to SCOSA and send them to: SCOSA/SOBL, Stockton University, 101 Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway, NJ 08205-9441. Please indicate if you need your donation to potentially be tax deductable. If so, we will put it into one of our Foundation funds; if not, we will deposit into a revenue account that directly supports our operating expenses.
