Knox College for Kids (College 4 Kids) is a summer enrichment program for students from Galesburg and the surrounding communities who have completed grades 3-9.
The program began at Knox College in 1975.
Classes are taught by Knox faculty, master teachers from area schools, professionals, and Knox College students who serve as teachers or teaching assistants through the REACH Fellows Program. Knox College created the REACH Program - "Recruiting and Enlightening through Access to and Communication with High-need schools" - to encourage more first-generation college students of color,especially men, to become elementary school teachers and role models in the community.
Knox College 4 Kids courses are designed to engage and motivate students of all backgrounds.
Scholarships for the program were made possible by a generous donation from Wells Fargo.
Knox College for Kids consists of three one-hour class periods held on weekdays, Monday-Friday, June 20 through July 1, 2016.
