College for Kids

Program Description

Update 5/26/2021 – We have been given permission to offer College for Kids on a much smaller scale as in-person!  Schools have received the registration packets to email with eligible students.  Past College for Kids students were emailed the registration packet on May 17th.
July 19-23 (Monday-Friday)
Students will participate in three consecutive classes that meet for five days. There is a 15-minute break between classes.  The program will look a little different this year.  Students have three options to choose from instead of one afternoon session:
• Option #1 – in-person – 8:30 am-12:00 pm
• Option #2 – in-person – 1:00-4:30 pm
• Option #3 – virtual – 9:00 am-12:30 pm
Students are required to select only one option.  There is no mixing the classes between the options.
The program is designed for students who are entering 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th grades for the 2021-22 school year. Initial eligibility is determined by meeting at least one of the following criteria:
The most recent achievement score at the 90th percentile or above on one of the following:
Reading total
-or- Math total
-or- Social Studies
-or- Science
-or- The most recent ability test score at the 90th percentile or above.
Once a student qualifies and attends College for Kids, he/she is eligible through 9th grade.
Students will be responsible for mailing the registration form to College for Kids, BHC-Outreach Center, 301 Avenue of the Cities, East Moline IL 61244.
Because we are limiting the number of students who can attend, students should mail their registration forms as soon as possible.  Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
