Mission Statement


The purpose of the City Lights Astronomical Society for Students (CLASS) is to take astronomy into urban areas and to show young people that they have choices when it comes to interests, that students can be interested in science either as a hobby, or as a career, as well as follow traditional pursuits. Our goal is to provide service to the underserved areas of our community. Services of CLASS are open to any student regardless of race, religion, national origin, sex, or creed because we celebrate our diversity. All services are free of charge. We support STEM.
