As usual for special events, parking is available at the Chinese Baptist Church (previously the Beth Hillel Synagogue) adjacent to Seabury. Shuttle service between the church and Seabury's main entrance will be available starting at 8:30 AM.Please park in the rear of the church's parking lot to minimize any inconvenience to people visiting the church.  



NEW PAGE:  

We've added a new page to our website for those of you who may have missed or are interested in a specific class.  The page contains links to written reviews and audio recordings of classes already held.  See "Class Reviews and Recordings" in the CLASSES drop down menu or just click here.


SEABURY PARKING FOR CLASSES 

Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). After parking, ALP members may enter the door with the large awning across the parking lot where there will be signs to direct you to your classrooms. Park in unnumbered spaces only.

For special events like the preview meetings or annual meeting, we will continue to provide shuttle service to Seabury's Main Entrance from the parking lot at the Chinese Baptist Church adjacent to Seabury. 

If you have a temporary or permanent disability that makes it difficult for you to get to your class from the Hilltop parking lot, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.  

There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!


SPECIAL NOTICE for those people with difficulty hearing:

Seabury's Heritage Hall and The Bishop's Chapel are equipped with a Hearing Loop, an "induction loop" system, which magnetically transmits sound to hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoms (T-coils). With a simple switch, guests with hearing loss can hear from the microphone directly to the hearing aid. People with hearing loss are now experiencing a reality where hearing aids also serve as wireless loudspeakers, delivering clear, customized sound from inside their ears. Thank you, Seabury!

Evaluation Form

If you have recently completed an ALP course and did not fill out an evaluation form as you left, you may provide an evaluation by filling out an online form here.


GET INVOLVED!

We could use more help.  If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all that you've received (or are about to receive), please let an ALP board member know! At your next ALP session, let the registrar know that you are interested, and someone will get in touch to see how you can be of service.
