Director's Message

Welcome to College for Kids, A Summer Exploration, Inc. 2019!  For 31 years, College for Kids has provided gifted children in MO and outlining states with an opportunity for educational and social growth during the summers, now located on the campus of William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri.  College for Kids, Inc. is delighted to have the opportunity to share this beautiful and safe college environment for the summer of 2019.

2019 brings exciting classes and activities to College for Kids.  When filling out the class selection of the application, please remember, to select both morning and afternoon classes indicating your top four
choices for each, using one through four (one as your first choice, four as your last choice).  College for Kids provides accelerated learning experiences specifically for academically talented students completing grades 3 - 9.  College for Kids combines rigorous academic experiences with fun and exciting     social    opportunities.  CK classes address contemporary issues and problems using a higher level of integrative, analytical, and critical thinking.  Class curriculum encourages awareness of and respect for divergence in thought among academic peers.  The CK experience also allows students to explore different academic content and methodologies in various disciplines.

College for Kids also addresses the physical needs of students today.  Everyday CK takes time for physical exercise, in various   classes and during Recreation time.  Exercise and physical fitness are necessary to fully realize one’s potential.  Please be sure to bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing, tennis shoes that lace/Velcro and SOCKS!

College for Kids
provides an excellent opportunity for gifted students to learn and socialize with their intellectual peers. Rather than being singled out and labeled as the “smart kid” in a regular classroom, students are surrounded by peers who share their interests and abilities. It is the friendships, just as much as the learning, that make kids want to return to College for Kids year after year.

This booklet contains all the information you need to enroll in College for Kids 2019.  If you have any questions or need additional forms (you have CK’s permission to copy any part of the booklet for enrollment purposes), write, call or FAX your inquiries.  Please remember it is important to get your application in early, classes and dormitory facilities often fill quickly.  Early registration can also save you money.

Please be sure to read this entire booklet.  The College for Kids staff and I look forward to a unique and challenging experience this summer as we join together for a week of learning and growing.
