Lancaster offers Kids in College program

LANCASTER, Ohio (May 7, 2007) -- Many children look forward to summer school, especially when they can take summer classes at Ohio University Lancaster Campus.

Kids in College, now in its 28th year, is especially designed  for children entering grades four through seven, or completing 8th grade, and will be held in week-long sessions June 11-15 and 18-22, and  June 25-29. 

According to Kids in College Coordinator Maryann Lape, students may enroll for one, two, or all three weeks, for a morning class or an afternoon class, or both.  The morning session begins at 9:30 and concludes at 11:30.  Afternoon classes are scheduled 12:30-2:30 p.m.  Students taking both and morning and afternoon sessions may bring sack lunches and eat in the student lounge.  The staff of The Zone, food service coordinated by Fairfield County MRDD, will offer hot, kid-friendly lunch items for sale.

Lape says that offering new courses each summer is her greatest challenge, especially since many students return year and year.

"We like to keep our courses exciting and interesting and we want to offer a variety.  Fortunately, our instructors come up with new ideas, and parents and students have great ideas, too."     

Each course costs $85, plus any applicable lab fees.
