Calvin Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL) offers a wide variety of intellectually stimulating, non-credit courses and learning opportunities designed for adults of all ages. Since there are no exams or homework, CALL members participate in courses solely for the joy of learning.

In addition to courses, members have opportunities to join lectures, events, and travel opportunities. CALL has exclusive member discounts based on partnerships with several performing arts companies in the Grand Rapids area.
