  • College for Kids

    College for Kids is an academic enrichment program for children of all ages - from pre-school through high school. 

    Through College for Kids, students can discover new talents, expand their knowledge and enjoy hands-on learning under the guidance of experienced educators. 

    Programs are offered year round at locations in Madison, Macoupin and Jersey counties, with a concentration of courses scheduled in the summer. 

    More than 20,000 young people have participated in hands-on learning in math, science, creative arts, technology and languages since the program began in 1989. 

    Other enrichment opportunities for students include classes in digital photography, horsemanship, musical theatre, golf, eco-science, robotics, cooking, local history, engineering, basketball and music. Classes are taught by highly qualified instructors, including L&C faculty and educators from local school districts.
