"I'm thrilled that I have found such excellent instructors at such a convenient location and affordable price. I would not be able to take several classes a week if it were not for MSAC, and I think its is making a difference for my physical condition and ability to navigate the icy streets in winter." -MSAC Member
We are a lively place to gather for classes, to engage with others, to share a meal-and we are re-opening for some in-person programs this summer after a long pandemic closing that put most online! We offer a wide variety of events, activities and programs relating to health, arts, travel, crafts, recreation, and education.

Pro-rated Dues and Financial AidMSAC membership dues are an annual expense and are not pro-rated until the 4th quarter of the membership year (April 2021 – June 2021), at which time the dues are discounted 50% to join for only the 4th quarter. Residents of Montpelier and MSAC’s six supporting towns are eligible to request financial aid to help cover annual membership dues. Members of all towns are eligible to request financial aid for class and trip fees. Financial aid applications may be requested in the office or printed online from the link below.
