College for Kids

Program Description

Update 3/24/2021 – We have been given permission to offer College for Kids on a much smaller scale as in-person!  Schools will have information to share with eligible students in May. 

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.  We are considering an AM option (8:30 am-12:00 pm), a PM option (1:00-4:30 pm) and a virtual option (9:00 am-12:30 pm).  Students select only one option.

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.
