A New Recreation Department Program 
available to the General Public


On July 1, 2019, the Barrington Community School became the Barrington Learning Center. This reborn entity is a Town of Barrington service operated by the Barrington Recreation Department.

The focus of the Barrington Learning Center continues the tradition of the Barrington Community School in offering overseas trips through Collette Tours, day trips to New York Broadway shows, Boston, and the favorite venues of Goodspeed and Theatre by the Sea, as well as new trip opportunities.

The Barrington Learning Center is also continuing to offer courses of all genres, including exercise programs, educational and enrichment opportunities, SAT and PSAT courses, and Babysitter and Home Alone courses.

Due to the extreme costs of publishing a newspaper, we are providing frequent email updates about upcoming courses and trips.If you wish to be on our email list, please go to and provide us with your email.

You may register for our programs in a number of ways: You may register online and pay with a credit card directly online, you may register online, print out the invoice and mail it to us with your check, or you may drop by the Recreation Department in the lower level of Barrington Town Hall and we will be happy to register you.

Our goal at the Barrington Learning Center is to create and share learning experiences, enrich lives and enhance knowledge, while maintaining a sustainable program through balanced attention to our mission and financial margin.

Please stop by the Recreation Department and learn more about the courses and trips we are offering!
