A Message from the ACA: In-Person and Online Learning

ACA remains committed to providing opportunities for all the members of our community to learn, collaborate, and connect. As the number of people vaccinated against COVID-19 increases and the number becoming infected decreases, ACA will be offering more in-person classes in adherence with guidelines and recommendations from the Town of Arlington, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ACA will also continue offering virtual classes to meet the evolving needs of our students who may be uncomfortable or unable to participate in person.
