College for Kids - Our 36th year!

Welcome to College for Kids! College for Kids is exclusively for talented and gifted children, grades 3-8.

This program will challenge students with collegiate experiences that are different from a regular classroom. Instructors use teaching methods appropriate to a college classroom, including: discussion, inquiry, laboratory and hands-on activities. College for Kids provides students with the opportunity to use their outstanding abilities and to recognize and accept their own giftedness as well as to meet other talented/gifted children.

The 2016 program dates are June 13-24 and classes will run 9:00 am to 12 noon, Monday through Friday.

Classes are held in our Center for Science and Business, Wallace Hall and the Wells Theatre. 

College for Kids catalogs and registration forms will be in area schools the second week in March. Catalogs will also be available on-line at this website.
