Kids get jump start on college education

Andy Williams   ||   Jun 26, 2012  ||   

Talk about getting them young…That’s what the College 4 Kids program sponsored by Metropolitan Community College in Omaha is all about. Elementary students ages 5 to 11 can enroll for a maximum of three classes in the week-long program and even receive a Metro student ID card, just like college students.

Classes include H2O Science Experiments, Acting 101, Erupting Volcanoes, Kids in the Kitchen, and more.

“It was started just as a community service thing years ago and we had enough room that we had it on campus,” said Tina Morgan, continuing education program planner.

“The goal was to get people familiar with Metro and used to being on campus so when their kids were ready for college they would think about Metro as being an alternative for them to go,” she added.

“It’s a fun program and the kids enjoy it,” Morgan said. “It’s rewarding to see them come back year after year.” For those who are too old to attend College 4 Kids, Metro also offers College 4 Teens.
