In 2020, College for Kids will celebrate its 40th year! When the program began in 1981, 20 classes were offered and a total of 335 students attended. The idea for College for Kids came from a committee of parents, teachers, Area IV staff and the support of BHC.
Today, the purpose of the College for Kids program is to broaden a student’s experiences with a variety of topics. Our goal is to develop and expand a student’s interest, stimulate creativity, and provide a unique learning experience.

The most recent achievement score at the 90th percentile or above on one of the following:
-or- Math total

Once a student qualifies and attends College for Kids, he/she is eligible through 9th grade.
