College for Kids- Verde Valley

College 4 Kids introduces children to college, encouraging them to pursue higher education and interact positively in their community.

Classes cover a broad variety of subjects — kids can creatively blog, compose graphic novels, take a virtual filmmaking bootcamp, or code their way to world domination.

For 2021, we're delighted to offer in-person, socially distanced morning programming for middle and high school students.
