Registration for Kids’ and Teen College at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) has opened to offer 150 virtual enrichment programs for children ages 5 to 17 years old. These programs allow kids and teens to design a fun, online summer experience specific to their interests, from home.
“Over the past few weeks, CSM staff has worked hard to restructure our Kids’ and Teen College summer program in order to provide our students with a high-quality educational experience, from the safety of their own home,” said Continuing Education and Workforce Development Associate Vice President Ellen Flowers-Fields. “Area summer camps may be cancelled, but CSM and our many programs are not.”
CSM Kids’ and Teen College programs range from acting/improv/vocals, YouTube Content Creators and Junior Vet to creative writing, coding and STEM. There are also a variety of school prep classes for music theory, foreign and sign language, webpage design and SAT/ACT. Math and reading common core classes help students who may have missed out on concepts that were critical in the 4th quarter of this school year. The courses are broken down by grade level.
“This year’s academic offerings target the quarter four K-12 learning objectives impacted this school year that students will need to be successful as they return to school in the fall,” said Flowers-Fields, “All of our offerings provide fun opportunities for kids and teens to interact with others their own age from all over the region who share the same interests.”
