Education for Older Adults

Stockton Center on Successful Aging

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

Some of the older adult programs offered by SCOSA are partially funded under Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, through a grant by the Division of Intergenerational Services, Atlantic County, New Jersey. You may make voluntary donations to SCOSA. Such donations are not a fee and are not required. Any 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.
