Sessions for students entering first through fifth grade run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each weekday and cover the basic subjects for each grade. Session for students entering sixth through 12th grade run from 1 to 4 in the afternoon. These students have the option of studying physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, or any other subject. They are not required to be at the college for the full three hours.

All classes will be held in King Building located on the northwest corner of College and Professor Streets.  Children from any school district may attend, space permitting.
