College for Kids is now offering a cohort program for our younger students. Parents have the opportunity to sign children up for a group of preset classes that will transition together throughout the day. The cohorts will be escorted by a College for Kids' instructional aide at all times. Our 4th and 5th grade students can now enjoy the college experience without the anxiety of navigating the campus. By taking classes together, children have the opportunity to form strong bonds and long-term friendships. Space is limited, so please register early.
CFK is excited to announce the following new and exciting courses that will be offered this summer!
Leadership and Community Involvement (both campuses) - Students will learn the skills necessary to take on leadership roles now and in the future through activities that develop self-esteem, essential life skills and characteristics needed for success.
Digital Citizenship (Pleasant Hill) - Students will learn digital literacy and citizenship topics through lessons focusing on internet safety, cyber bullying, privacy and security and information literacy.
CSI: CFK - Crime Scene Investigation (Pleasant Hill) - Students will have the opportunity to solve various simulated crime scenes using skills such as fingerprint analysis, DNA profiling and handwriting comparisons. This class takes place in a campus crime lab and offers a true, hands-on experience in the world of crime scene investigation!
Dig It! DVC Archaeology Dig (Pleasant Hill) - Do you like to find things that are lost? Put pieces together? Figure out stories from clues? Learn about the past? These are all things archeologists do—maybe you're one, too! College for Kids' Archeology class involves dirt-digging, story-telling and mystery-solving fun using clues and artifacts to uncover an ancient civilization with a simulated dig.
