Main Campus

Each summer, the On-Campus Continuing Education Department opens its doors to many children entering grades 1 – 8 as of September. Our Summer Youth Program provides academic instruction, recreation and cultural indoor and outdoor activities.

Participants have a choice of programs that offer math, reading, writing, recreation, dance, acting, artistic skills, arts & crafts, computer, science, sports, and much more. Computer lab time and recreation is also incorporated in the daily schedule.

Our indoor and outdoor activities play an integral part in the youth program. These unique experiences can encourage lifelong learning, enthusiasm and commitment to service, self-confidence, and a stronger sense of community among participants.

We have been fortunate enough to see many of our previous participants grow up and accomplish their goals by being successful students in high school and/or college. As a result, we believe that our summer program is very beneficial in the lives of those who attend.
