Kids Can Go to College at PSC

Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Some kids lose more than two months of knowledge when they are not engaged in summer activities. Kids can retain that knowledge and get a head start on the upcoming school year at the Prairie State College Kids@College program.

Kids@College is a three-week summer enrichment program for children entering 2nd through 7th grade. The program will be held Monday through Thursday, July 12-29, from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., at the college’s Adult Training and Outreach Center, located on the college’s main campus, 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights.

The day is split into two sections. Morning classes include language arts, math, computers, reading, art, and science. Afternoon classes include sports taught by physical education instructors and classes such as first aid, babysitting, Spanish, and study skills.

“Kids@College bring together kids who love to learn,” said Mike Moody, “This year we are including a physical education component and a choice of classes in the afternoon so students can learn a new skill that appeals to them,” said Mike Moody, coordinator of the Matteson Area Center and the Kids@College program.

More information about the Kids@College program is available in the summer class schedule and on PSC’s Web site at For more information or to register, contact Moody at (708) 709-7711 or [email protected].
