The program serves parents and children alike by providing fun, safe and educational activities with the added benefit of introducing kids to the college environment. In our new College for Kids format, your children will be able to choose between fun and exciting classes that meet your schedule.
Our College for Kids Program will not offer before and after care but lunchtime supervision will be offered at no additional charge for children registered for full day only. Please bring a non perishable sack lunch.
Courses are taught by experienced and motivated instructors who encourage and challenge students in a learning atmosphere that supports inquiry and exploration.
The instructors teaching in the College for Kids program have written and designed their curriculum with age appropriate lessons and projects that will maximize your child's experience.
