College for Kids has chosen its faculty carefully to insure subject matter expertise and skill in working with young people. Many were referred by teachers and administrators in central Contra Costa County's program for gifted and talented children. Other instructors are Diablo Valley College faculty members. All have had practical experience with subjects they teach and/or years of teaching experience.
There are two 3-week sessions of College for Kids. Classes are held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Generally classes are one hour long, with the exception of a Photography class which is 2 hours. A student can sign up for one, two or three classes each session.
