Nevins offers free, on-site education classes to adults that are enrolled in any of its programs. These include Art Therapy and Music Therapy as well as our partnership with CPCC. This invaluable educational opportunity is made possible through a long-time partnership with the Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) Compensatory Education program.
