College for Kids 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.
College for Kids courses is a pathway to college. Students become aware of a college environment as they are exposed to a wide variety of subjects, which will encourage them to consider college as an option as they go through primary and secondary school. Every student that enrolls in a College for Kids course gets assigned their very own CTC ID number that stays with them for the rest of their life. That means they are already on the path to enroll in postsecondary education with Central Texas College! Find fun in learning with College for Kids!
CFK primarily runs in the summer from June to August, with a few select classes offered during the school year.
All 2022 CFK courses will be held on campus, in person.
The Course Schedule is posted online by the last week of April. The schedule will also be available at the Summer Preview, May 14th, 2022.
Registration for 2022 CFK courses starts Saturday, May 14 (in-person only via the 2022 Summer Blast-Off event) and Monday, May 16 via phone.
CFK offers courses for all ages with the majority of courses for ages 5-12. Check the course description in the course schedule for the specific age of the course you are interested in.
Absolutely. There is no limit to how many courses you can sign up for.
We strongly discourage students outside of the designated age range enroll in the course. Our courses were designed with specific ages in mind to create a positive learning environment for all students.
Cost varies per course. All course costs are listed in the course schedule, as well as on our website.
We do not offer financial assistance for College for Kids courses.
Upon registration, you will receive a copy of your registration form. The form will tell you where the course is located. On the first day of class, accompany your child to his or her classroom. We will need you to sign the student in when dropping off at the classroom and sign the student out at the end of class. Sign in’s and sign out’s are required for EACH day of class. No car drop-offs are allowed. Please be on time when bringing your child to class and picking them up afterward. This will be adequate time for the sign-in/sign-out process. If someone else will be dropping off/picking up your child, please indicate so on the waiver form upon registration. DO NOT leave your child in the classroom if the Instructor or Instructor Aide is not present.
Do not park in spaces marked “reserved” or “official” anywhere on campus. Any unmarked spaces are fine, and you do not need a parking permit.
Something came up and my child is no longer able to take the class…what do I do? If you need to drop a class for any reason, contact our office before the first day of class to receive a full refund. See our refund policy for more detailed info.
Snacks are not provided unless the course description mentions making snacks as part of the course. It is a good idea to pack your child a lunch or snack if the course is more than two hours, or if they will be attending several courses in one day. Vending machines are available in the lounge area, and machines accept coins and $1 bills. The front office does not have any cash available, so make sure students bring the correct amount.
Besides a snack or lunch, if desired, students do not need to bring anything with them unless otherwise noted in the course description. Central Texas College is not responsible for any lost or stolen items brought by the students.
Wear clothes that are okay to get messy in and closed-toe shoes (no flip flops, sandals, etc), unless otherwise noted in the course description.
Yes. A parent or caretaker can stay with them in class. Call our office at 254-526-1586 if special accommodations need to be made, and we can work with Disability Support Services to see how we can help.
Class size is a minimum of 4-6 students, maximum of 16 students.
College for Kids hires Instructor Aides for this purpose. Aides provide support to the Instructor and help facilitate a positive learning environment for the student.
No, unless the parent is accompanying a student with a disability. Due to social distancing guidelines and classroom capacity, parents are not able to stay in the classroom with the student. Parents are welcome to wait in our lounge while the student is in class.
