Classes that do not reach

Please register before this
date to ensure classes run.
What is College for Kids and Teens?
College for Kids and Teens (CFK/CFT), through the School of Continuing Education (SCE), is a hands-on enrichment program for
students entering grades K5-12 who have high academic potential, motivation and talent. Now in its 36th year, the program
consists of one- and two-week classes in Creative Arts, Humanities/Social Sciences, Languages & Cultures, Math & Computers,
and Science. Taught by UW system faculty or highly qualified and experienced instructors, all programs provide an
“academic edge,” and class sizes are limited to 16 students unless otherwise noted.
PLEASE NOTE
• Kindergartners must be five years old by June 10, and must
have prior five-days-a-week school experience to participate
in our program. This rule will be strictly enforced and children
who do not meet this requirement will be subject to immediate
withdrawal with no refund given.
• When registering for CFK and CFT, use next fall grade levels.
• Some classes are designed for a broader range of students
(e.g. grades 6-12), and others are more specifically targeted –
look for grade levels listed next to each program number.
• Select courses have a $5-25 computer lab or material fee
included in the price.
When and Where?
How Do I Register?
Classes are held Mon.-Fri., June 20-Aug. 12
on the UWM campus, unless otherwise
noted. Specific class dates/times are
included in course descriptions.
Registration opens each year on Jan. 15.
Call, fax in your registration, or go online to
uwm.edu/sce-kids to enroll.
Registration Policy
Once your child or teen is registered
there are no refunds or transfers.
Refunds are made only for classes
cancelled by CFK/CFT.
Confirmation of Registration
(Note: Mailed registrations add several days to
the registration process and lessen the likelihood
of availability in your desired class.)
Discount Code
If registering for six or more classes,
please call (414) 227-3360 or email
[email protected] to receive a
one-time discount code.
Your receipt and parental permission forms
will be emailed to you for completion and
return. If you do not provide an email
address, you will receive them by mail.
You may also visit uwm.edu/sce-kids to
download permission forms right away.
All participants are encouraged to have
their own health insurance, as only limited
secondary accident insurance is provided
by the University.
To make things easier for students and parents, we offer supervised care in the Union Terrace
Room before and after the program day, for a minimal charge. Chaperoning children to or
from class is included in the fee. Come early or stay late. You must sign up for the full week.

College for Kids/Teens’ (CFK/T) partnership with the UWM Writing Project results in offering student writers a chance to work
with three professionally and academically trained TCs per class! These instructors utilize materials from the Writing Project
to shape a classroom of supportive learning.
The UWM Writing Project – Young Writers’
Academy
The UWM Writing Project - Introductory
Teen Writing Academy
The UW-Milwaukee Writing Project’s (UWMWP) camp for aspiring
writers entering grades 6 through 8 is back by popular demand.
Meet each day in writing groups facilitated by experienced writers
and teachers whose goal is to inspire imagination and have fun!
Write daily in a creative, supportive environment. Students of all
writing abilities are welcome, although this camp will focus on a
broad range of introductory writing:
Sponsored by the UW-Milwaukee Writing Project, this writing class
is designed specifically for teens who are interested in practicing
writing across three genres: fiction, poetry, and non-fiction/essay.
These classes are facilitated by experienced writers and teachers
who will introduce writing activities that are fun, helpful, and
inspiring to the imagination! Student writers will:
• Explore a variety of genres, including poetry, short stories, essays
and more.
• Receive individual instruction and feedback in small groups from
UWMWP Teacher-Consultants.
• Learn introductory and foundational writing techniques used by
professional writers.
• Meet and share writing with young writers from throughout the county.
• Engage in the full writing process: brainstorming, drafting, revising,
and editing.
Because this writing academy is sponsored by the UWM Writing
Project, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher-tostudent ratios (1 instructor for every 5 or 6 students). This allows
the opportunity to learn more about and help writers individually!
The Young Writers’ Academy culminates in a celebration of writing
at the end of the week, where students are encouraged to share
your favorite pieces! New and returning participants are welcomed
to attend!

stories, and creative non-fiction/essay.
• Choose two genres and produce polished writing pieces.
• Learn writing techniques used by professional writers.
• Receive individual instruction and response in small groups.
• Cultivate an initial writing process: brainstorming, free writing, drafting,
and revising.
• Celebrate writing with a culminating community event designed to
share our writing with parents, teachers and peers.
Since this is a writing academy sponsored by the UWM Writing
Project, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher to
student ratios (1 instructor for every 5 or 6 students). This allows us
the opportunity to know writers as individuals!
This is open to all students who are interested in writing even
if they have not participated in other writing programs (some
background in writing is welcomed and encouraged but not
mandatory). Students can bring previous work but will spend the
week focused on new writing projects that fit within our three
genre areas.

Disciplinary Information
uwm.edu/sce-languages
uwm.edu/sce-languages
Disruptive students are taken to the CFK/CFT
office and their parents are notified. Continued
disruption results in removal from the program.
Age Requirement
Kindergartners must be five years old
by June 10, and must have prior
five-days-a-week school experience to
participate in our program. This rule will be
strictly enforced and children who do not
meet this requirement will be subject to
immediate withdrawal with no refund given.
Pickup & Dropoff
Pickup and dropoff are at the Union Circle, 2200
E. Kenwood Blvd., or inside the Union Terrace
Room (SW corner on the ground floor).
Instructors will bring their students to the Union
Terrace at the end of class time. You must pick
your child up within 15 minutes (e.g. if class ends
at 4pm, pickup must be no later than 4:15pm).
Students will be allowed to wait for their ride
either inside the Union Terrace or outside at the
circle drive. Please make sure your child knows
where they are meeting you.
You will be charged $10 for every 15 minutes
past the pickup time (e.g. 4:16-4:31pm would be
$10; 4:32-4:47pm would be $20, and so on). If
your child is not picked up within one hour, CFK/
CFT will contact the UWM police. Your child will
not be allowed to return to classes until the fee
has been paid.
Only students who have a signed parental
consent form granting them permission to leave
unattended will be able to leave without an adult.
If your child is to go home on their own, make
sure you sign that form. These students will be
given orange wristbands to wear throughout
the program.
If you need to pick up your child early or drop
them off late, you will need to go directly to
the classroom. Please do not drop children off
at the Union if you are running late. If you do
not see a staff member standing outside the
Union, students and instructors have already
left, and you will need to take your child to his/
her classroom. If you do not know the classroom
location, please call our office at 414-229-6364
or visit the Union information desk – located on
the ground floor.
Meals
Lunch and snacks are not included. Please
provide your child with a bag lunch and/or snack
each day. Only students who have permission to
leave unattended (orange wristband) will be able
to purchase food on campus.
Children With­­­ Special Concerns
If your child has special needs or requires
medication during class, please contact us before
enrolling. This will ensure that we can address all
of your concerns.
Mail List Requests
To update your name and address, remove your
name from our mailing list, or eliminate duplicate
mailings, call 414-227-3186. Please refer to your
name and address exactly as it appears on the
mailing label. Or, fill out the form on our website

Other Important Information
Do not leave your car unattended in the Union
circle drive, you will be ticketed by campus police
and there is nothing CFK/CFT can do about it! A
parking ramp is available just to the east of the
driveway. Street parking is also available.
If students are enrolled in back-to-back classes
they will be supervised in the Union Terrace
Room, unless you have given them permission to
be unattended.
