Transitioning to an online format,
2020 KidsCollege Summer STEM & Arts Academies
June 1–August 28, 2020
KidsCollege is now ONLINE with more classes, for more ages at a lower rate!
We are now offering classes for Pre-K through ninth grade, that can be taken from the comfort and safety of your home. Over 200 classes will run from June 1 - August 28, 2020, including new parent-child classes and STEM, art, fitness, and career exploration classes.
We appreciate your patience while we transition as many academies as possible to online classes. We are working as fast as we can to complete this new ONLINE catalog and will publish it as we progress. View weeks 1-6 by clicking on the schedule above. To register for all academies visit our online registration system.
All academies listed in the PDF catalog above are hyperlinked to the online registration system. Click on the academy title to be taken to the registration page. In some cases there is additional academy information about required class materials.
KidsCollege Online FAQs
How will my child get the necessary supplies for their classes?
PVCC is going to purchase supplies and mail them to you while the Stay-at-Home orders are in place (through June 10, as of now). After the Stay-at-Home orders expire (currently any classes after June 10) we will have a pick-up date and time for you to grab your student’s supplies from us at PVCC Stultz Center.
All cooking classes will have a supply/ingredients list for you to purchase on your own. PVCC will not be purchasing cooking class ingredients to send out (as many of these items are perishable).
Will there be any face-to-face classes this summer?
No. After much consideration, in an effort to ensure staff and student safety, we have moved all KidsCollege 2020 classes online.
How will online camps work?
Online classes will still be a week long (Monday-Friday). Class times vary, so please make note of that when looking at the class schedules.
Classes can be accessed best by using a laptop. In most cases, you can also use a tablet or phone (certain classes have noted if this is not the case).
Instructors will be available to teach live according to the schedule times. We have asked that instructors please keep their video instruction to 45 min. or less chunks at a time, with projects for students to work on in between.
Instructors will also be available to answer any questions students may have live on video or using the chat feature.
Parent supervision is not necessary, with the exception of our parent-child cooking classes. All other classes and activities have been planned for students to be able to work on without parent assistance.
For some classes, certain programs will need to be downloaded on your device to participate. If that is the case, you will be contacted, after you register, with the information on how to access the necessary programs.
