Coastal Youth Academy, a non-credit membership program for
and high school age students, is being offered through Coastal Carolina
University's 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 No's
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 Coastal's foreign language lab, math lab and computer lab.
Members will get university ID cards, making them eligible to use
Coastal's 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
