Spring Term Update
Over 90 of our Spring Term classes are now available online! A full list of all courses can be found here.
MALT has suspended in-person courses until further notice. In this moment of physical distancing, our mission to connect diverse neighbors through shared interests feels more important than ever. Our organization, and other community organizations in our region, will need help surviving this crisis. A donation of any size will help us keep our doors open after this global health crisis lifts.
We wish you moments of peace and joy, and hope that you stay safe and healthy!
If you have any questions about online registration, please email us.
The printed catalog is a good place to start but not all classes transitioned to an online format. Please browse our course listings online for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Fern Bell Scholarship Fund
We believe that all individuals should have the opportunity to enrich their lives with a Mt. Airy Learning Tree course. This Fund allows MALT to offer a 25-50% scholarship to individuals in financial need.
Fern S. Bell was brought on board as a MALT staff member in 1986, the year MALT moved into its new quarters on Germantown Avenue at Westview Street in the basement of what had been an old post office (now Work Mt. Airy under High Point Wholesale). During her tenure as Secretary at MALT, Fern weathered two floods, a robbery and other struggles of a small office. She loved the director's dog, Mindy, and going out for snacks of bagels and cream cheese from Carmen's across the street. In 1989, Fern suddenly took ill and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Sadly, she passed away later that year.
If you'd like to inquire about a scholarship, or would like to make a financial contribution to the Fund, contact the MALT office at (215) 843-6333.
