SEA Summer Children's Program
TENTATIVE Summer 2014 Schedule: July 7-25, 2013, Monday-Friday, 9 am - Noon
Starting Early At Salem State University, SEA, is open to ALL students currently enrolled in grades 4-8 (ages 10-15). Our program consists of one (1) course module per week, so that students can attend for one, two or all three weeks! The students will really sink their teeth into the subject matter! Each class is small in size, and provides enough time and materials for your young person to learn even more about the topics they choose to study.
If you want more info about how your child will be challenged, meet new friends, and have fun while learning this summer at SEA, call The Professional and Community Enrichment program at 978.542.6331 and leave your name and address, or email Larry Lodgen, SEA Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a brochure and application.
