Lifelong Learning

A program of the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation, RILL, was designed by a group of volunteers to be a life-enriching and thought-provoking learning experience for adults who wish to keep their minds active.

Mission:  Recognizing that a vigorous mind is as necessary to a full life as are physical exercise and social relationships, RILL offers educational opportunities and intellectual enrichment for adults of any age. In a stimulating classroom study environment, participants can acquire new knowledge, explore thought-provoking ideas, and share their interests and experience with like-minded community members.

Classes: RILL’s noncredit college-level classes are held in several convenient locations within RCC’s service region, and usually meet from 1 to 3 p.m. Some instructors may suggest specific preliminary reading material to prepare students to get the most from the course; this information will be sent to registered students. The courses will include neither prerequisites nor tests. We hope that you will take a few minutes to fill out a course evaluation. Evaluations by participants will provide feedback for future offerings.

Registration: Registration and tuition are required prior to the start of classes, and early registration is strongly advised because enrollment is often limited. You may register and securely pay online, by phone, or via email. Please contact RCC College Advancement Administrative Specialist Sharon Drotleff at 804-333-6707 or by email:, for assistance or to request that a brochure be mailed to you.

The tuition fee must accompany the completed registration form and checks should be made payable to RCC/EFI. You may register and pay by phone with either Visa or MasterCard. Tuition is neither tax-deductible nor refundable. Separate charitable gifts to the Foundation, designated for RILL, will help to defray RILL program costs. These gifts are tax-deductible.
