Saddleback College Community Education to Offer After-School and Enrichment Programs at Capistrano Unified School District Schools in New Partnership

Building on Saddleback College’s strong partnership with the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD), Saddleback College’s Community Education program has been selected to provide summer, after-school, and enrichment activities at local schools for children from ages 4 to 17.

Summer Experience day camps will begin on July 8th at six local schools and offer students art, science, cooking, sports, and academic enrichment classes taught by CUSD teachers. The camps will be held in Aliso Viejo at Canyon Vista and Oak Grove elementary schools; Ladera Ranch at Oso Grande Elementary School; San Clemente at Marblehead Elementary School; Laguna Niguel at Laguna Niguel Elementary School; and Rancho Santa Margarita at Las Flores Elementary School.

A more extensive schedule of after-school and enrichment activities will be available at additional campuses in the fall.

Dr. Tod A. Burnett, president of Saddleback College, stated, “Our partnership with CUSD allows the college to expand our thriving College for Kids program to area schools, giving families greater access to our exceptional programs that focus on personal enrichment and skill-building to children of all ages.”

CUSD Superintendent Dr. Joseph M. Farley said, “This District is proud to expand our partnership with Saddleback College to include students of all ages. Students in south Orange County will be able to explore a variety of interests while continuing their learning outside of the traditional school day.”

The CUSD Board of Trustees is expected to formally ratify the agreement with Saddleback College this month.

Saddleback College’s Community Education program will assess the needs of each school, expand current offerings, transition successful summer and after-school classes that were previously offered by CUSD to the new program, and form new partnerships to meet the after-school educational and enrichment needs of local students and families.

To register for the Summer Experience program, please visit the Saddleback college Community Education website at Summer Experience classes will run from July 8th  to August 23rd. Information on after-school activities for the 2013-2014 school year will be forthcoming.

For more than 30 years Saddleback College Community Education has provided the south Orange County community with high-quality classes and activities that promote life-long learning and personal success. The College for Kids summer program was established in the early 1980’s, offering a wide assortment of classes to children at the Saddleback College campus. Community Education also offers swimming and diving lessons through its youth aquatics program.
