Kids University (KidsU) is designed to offer extended academic opportunities for full-time students at Atholton Adventist Academy. Its programming is an extension of the regular school programming and is designed to enhance the student's total learning experience. KidsU offers before-school study time, after-school tutoring and homework assistance, and a six-week full-time summer program.
During the school year KidsU operates from 6:30 am to 8:00 am and from 3:30-6:00 pm. Before school, students may finish classroom assignments, study for exams, or participate in guided play. After school, KidsU offers students a guaranteed time and space to complete homework assignments, academic assistance from teachers for students requiring additional subject-area tutoring, special classes designed to meet student interest, and sports activities.
During the summer, KidsU expands to a six-week full day program that assists students with continued academic development while maintaining a summer flavor of traditional day-camp activities. KidsU's summer program runs from June 7-July 19, 2013 (except July 4). Regular hours are from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Extended hours run from 7:00 am-6:00 pm.
KidsU also conducts a one-week summer intensive English language program designed to help foreign students develop/practice English language skills and explore American culture. Contact the school for availability for this program.
