Opening Jan. 15:
College for Kids and Teens Registration
Recent studies show that children experience a loss in learning when they fail to participate in educational programs over summer break.
According to the National Summer Learning Association, students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the break.
Experts offer many tips for avoiding the lapse in learning, including daily reading, journaling, music lessons and field trips. But many parents struggle to find time to provide enough educational experiences on their own.
College for Kids and Teens fills the gap.
College for Kids and Teens provides more than 150 fun and challenging, hands-on summer courses for grades K5-12. Now in its 34th year, the program gives children the ‘academic edge’ they need, and prevents the summer learning lapse. Classes are held on the UWM campus, a setting that gets many kids – especially teens – excited about attending college in the future.
Taught by highly regarded instructors and UW system faculty, courses cover diverse areas including creative arts, humanities and social sciences, languages and cultures, math and computers, and science. Additional special programs target more specific age groups, meet for longer classes or focus on unique topics. And although more than 2,000 students participate each year, class sizes are kept to just 16 or less so that each child receives the individual attention needed to excel.
Registration for all classes opens Jan. 15. Due to high demand, parents are strongly encouraged to enroll their children as soon as possible.
