Are your children looking for something to do this summer -- something that will challenge and teach them, with a little fun on the side? The Center for Continuing Education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will offer their Third Annual College for Kids during the month of July for students entering grades fourth through ninth.

College for Kids is a three-week summer program that begins Monday, July 8, and continues through Thursday, July 25. Children attending the program spend time in a college setting that provides a unique learning environment outside the traditional classroom. They get to choose either academic or elective courses ranging from writing improvement to theatre.

The courses are focused to provide improvement in core class academics and utilize curiosity and imagination with social and personal enhancement courses.

Registration is currently open and will remain open until Friday, June 28. Each class is limited to 15 students so early registration is advised.

All classes are held Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students may choose full- or half-day options. They may attend one, two or all three weeks of the program.

Tuition for College for Kids is $375 for the full-time three week option and $200 for part-time for three weeks. Each week individually is $175 for full-time and $125 for part-time.

Courses are even named like college classes with the following key: 101 classes are academic classes for fourth to sixth graders and 201 classes are academic for seventh to ninth graders. On the elective side, 400 classes are for all levels, 401 classes are for fourth to sixth graders and 402 classes are for seventh to ninth graders.
