Coastal Youth Academy, a non-credit membership program for middle and high school age students, is being offered through Coastal Carolina Universitys Division of Extended Learning and Public Services. The academic enrichment program will provide students with a great learning experience in a university setting.

A unique component of the program is that many of the courses are taught by upper level Coastal education and foreign language majors.

Spring 2001 classes are being offered in Algebra II; art; basic math; drama; Spanish II; as well as computer classes in Windows, Microsoft Word and Internet research. An online grammar course, No Nos for English 101, is also being offered. Most classes are held in the late afternoon, early evening or on Saturday, although two classes are scheduled in the afternoon to accommodate the growing number of home school students in the area.

Membership in the program allows students to take classes designed to help them move ahead and excel in key academic areas. Coastal Youth Academy members also have access to the resources available on campus, including Coastals foreign language lab, math lab and computer lab. Members will get university ID cards, making them eligible to use Coastals Kimbel Library, and to receive student discounts for campus cultural events and free admission to athletic events.

The membership fee is $15 per semester. Course costs vary. For more information about course locations, dates and times, contact Coastals Division of Extended Learning and Public Services at 349-2673 or visit on the Internet.
