“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

It sounds like an odd question to ask someone your age, but it isn’t. There was a time in your life when you would try anything… everything. Life was a place to learn and play.

It still is.

At Texarkana College, we know that “growing up” and growing what you know happens your whole life long. The revolutionary car maker, Henry Ford said it this way, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”

It’s never too late to learn. From Dale Carnegie business secrets to dancing the rumba, Texarkana College Continuing Education can teach you the skills to forge ahead. We can also teach you the skills to forge a knife in Introduction to Bladesmithing, and a whole lot more.

Let us help you grow what you know.
