College For Kids

Register Today for College For Kids

Each summer College for Kids (CFK) "professors" teach courses for children grades 3-8 in math, science, technology, language arts (including foreign languages), social studies, STEM, art, music, health, nutrition, physical education and even lifetime hobbies.

New This Year

Based on community feedback, this year's CFK will be offered full days to better accommodate working parents' schedules. There will be three class sessions (90 minutes) each day. Children can choose to attend two or three classes daily.

A Few of the Courses

  • The Amazing World of Reptiles and Amphibians
  • STEM DIY Projects (model airplanes, mousetrap car, etc.)
  • Microbe Mania (little bugs, creatures, etc.)
  • Master Artists (famous artists and their work)
  • Fabulous Photo Fun (taking and editing digital photos, slideshows, etc.

View the Course Description page for more information.

Commencement Ceremony

On the final day from 3-4pm, students will graduate from College for Kids 2016. The commencement ceremony will be held in East Hall where graduates will receive their certificate. Parents, grandparents, family members, etc. are all invited to participate, take pictures and view projects completed by the students. We will also recognize our teachers and volunteers.


CFK students may enroll in full days (8am-4pm) for $200 or half days (8am-12pm) for $150. Limited scholarships are available to those who have an economic hardship as set by state guidelines.
