Summer educational youth programs offered

April 17, 2000

SuperSonic Summer Youth Programs, a series of summer educational programs designed for students age seven to 15, are being offered June 5 through August 3 at Coastal Carolina University.

More than 60 programs are available and features classes on computer technology, foreign language, science, math, ecology, drama and writing skills. Sponsored by Coastal's Division of Extended Learning and Public Services, all classes will be held on the Coastal campus.

Most courses are held Monday through Thursday. Half-day courses are $65 per student and full-day courses are $125. A discount will apply if a student registers for more than one full-week or if two or more children register from the same family.

The courses are taught by Coastal instructors, Horry County school teachers and community experts in the field. Class sizes are small with student-teacher ratios of 14:1.

A new evening program being offered this summer in conjunction with the youth programs is Inter-Generational Education: Kids and Adults - Sharing, Caring and Learning Together. The program follows the proven and successful concept of learning based on personal one-on-one instruction between a child and an adult.
