Midwest City, Okla. – Opening day enrollment for Rose State’s Kids College program is off to an unprecedented start with nearly two-thousand school-aged children registered.
1,971 boys, girls, young men and women, kindergarten – 10th grades were registered as the first day of classes began on June 5th. The enrollment marks a 49-percent increase of opening day enrollment from 2016.
Since 2003, Rose State College has provided summer classes for kids of all ages. The idea behind the offerings is to keep the students engaged with focused subjects they might not have access to in regular classrooms.
“Rose State partners with teachers from the metropolitan area to deliver safe and engaging curriculum at Kids College,” stated Rick Woodard, Director of Rose State’s Community Learning Center. “Our goal is when student’s and parent’s walk away after a week of camp they just want to turn around and come right back for another class.”
Offerings this year include:
Rose State anticipates July enrollment for Kids College to be enhanced with new enrollments funded by the Midwest City Junior Service League grant.
In addition, sections of this year’s program are being supported by the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission which provided a grant for our Space Discovery Program.
Kid’s College runs from June 5th through August 3rd. Each week there are different morning and afternoon sessions and classes run four-days Monday’s-Thursday’s.
