Knox College for Kids

Knox College for Kids (College 4 Kids) is a summer enrichment program for gifted, high achieving, and talented students from Galesburg and the surrounding communities who will be entering 3rd through 8th grades.

Knox College 4 KidsThe program began in 1975 and is administered by the Knox Department of Educational Studies. Classes are taught by Knox faculty and master teachers from area schools, with Knox students serving as teaching assistants through the REACH Fellows Program. Knox 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 for Kids courses are designed to engage high-achieving students, while also serving as the first exposure to higher education for many children of underrepresented groups and low socioeconomic backgrounds, who may someday be the first in their families to attend college.
