The Fall 2016 semester of RappU brings a host of new and interesting classes to Rappahannock County. We are excited about our Fall line-up and the many new instructors who are volunteering their time to make life-long learning a feature of our beautiful landscape.

The semester begins the week of September 12, but start and end dates will vary depending upon the number of sessions. You can see the full class descriptions once registration begins.

Classes are one to nine weeks in length, and cost between $10 and $25.  You can register online or else print out the registration form and mail it in with a check or your credit card information.
