College for Kids
WHAT IS COLLEGE FOR KIDS?
College for Kids (CFK) provides a summer of education for students of all ages starting as young as five. Through College for Kids, students can discover new talents, meet new friends, and expand their knowledge in a fun hands-on learning environment under the guidance of highly passionate and experienced Instructors.
Thank you to all of the students who participated in College for Kids during Summer 2021! We had a blast programming robots, baking cookies, learning about aliens, and creating Minecraft worlds with you (amongst others)! We hope you had a fun-filled, educational, and engaging summer. Best of luck in the upcoming school year!
FALL CFK COURSES
New this year, we are offering CFK in the Fall! Registration starts Tuesday, August 24th.
Be Great on Purpose (Age 13-17) NEW!
Many people fail to take the necessary action to achieve their goals because of a sense of overwhelm. The goal appears to be too large and too difficult to achieve, or maybe they are lacking some of the skills required to achieve that goal. That’s where Be Great on Purpose steps in. This course will encourage students to “just start” and be courageous through the process of learning. Students will learn some basic strategies to start creating success in any area of life they choose from where they currently are to where they want to be by turning their dreams and ideas into a concrete vision. You don’t have to be great to start, however you do have to start to be great! Bring a notebook and pencil with you to class. Vantonio Fraley is a successful entrepreneur and founder of a nonprofit that mentors individuals through education, entrepreneurship and sports to empower them to be all they can be. (4 meetings)
