From cooking to crafts and language to technology, our classes allow your kids to thrive and explore in a safe environment.

Kids College


Welcome to Kid's College! These non-credit classes provide enrichment for imaginative young minds.

Corporate & Community Services is currently offering Kids College classes for students in first grade through high school. We focus on STEAM-based subjects and utilize instructors who are experts in their fields.

In our classes, students enjoy hands-on activities while exploring educational topics, making new friends and — most importantly — having fun! Classes are set during the day, evening and Saturdays to accommodate the busy schedules of today's families.
