2017 brings exciting classes and activities to College for Kids. College for Kids provides accelerated learning experiences specifically for academically talented students completing grades 3rd -­ 9th. College for Kids combines rigorous academic experiences  with  fun and exciting social opportunities.      


CK classes address contemporary issues and problems using a higher level of integrative, analytical, and critical thinking. Class curriculum encourages awareness of and respect for divergence in thought among academic peers. The CK experience also allows student to explore different academic content and methodologies in various disciplines.  


Remember when filling out the class selection of the application, to select both morning and afternoon classes indicating your top four choices of each using one through four (one as your first choice, four as your last choice).      


College for Kids also addresses the physical needs of all students today. Everyday CK takes time for physical exercise, in various  classes and during Recreation Time. Exercise and physical fitness are necessary to fully realize to fully realize one's potential. Please be sure to bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing, tennis shoes that lace  and SOCKS!  


College for Kids provides an excellent opportunity for gifted students to learn and socialize with their intellectual peers. Rather than being singled out and labeled as the "smart kid" in a regular classroom, students are surrounded by peers who share their interests and abilities. It is the friendships, just as much as  the learning, that makes kids want to return to College for Kids year after year.
