ICC’s College for Kids Combines Summer Learning with Fun
Registration opens March 11 for the summer 2019 sessions of Illinois Central College’s popular College for Kids program. The summer program features fun and educational classes for students entering fourth through twelfth grades. Session 1 runs Monday –Thursday, June 10-21, and Session 2 runs Monday ─ Thursday, July 8-19.
Kids are sure to find topics to fit their interests, with classes available in leadership skills, French, chess, cooking, dance, science, art, Harry Potter, balloon artistry, computer design and coding, and much more. Several new classes are being offered this year. Some of these include: “The Price is Right!,” which teaches kids to earn, save and spend in a fun way; “Disney 101,” in which students will learn all things Disney-related; and “Python Programmers,” which explores coding with Python to create engaging apps and games.
Kids can extend their fun by participating in additional off-site Friday Fun Trips offered from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on each Friday of College for Kids. Cost for these Friday fun sessions ranges from $75 to $95.
Two additional class options extend the day and accommodate working parents — Early Bird Club, available Monday through Thursday from 7:15 to 8:15 am, and Club CFK, available from 3:15 to 5 pm. Both Early Bird Club and Club CFK feature games and computers. Cost for Early Bird Club is an additional $45, and Club CFK costs an additional $75.
Tuition per class varies for each class, based on instructional materials needed. Space is limited. Registration is available March 11 by phone at (309) 690-6900, or online at www.icc.edu/cfk. A complete listing of classes, descriptions and registration materials also will be available online.
