District 214 Community Education's online registration is now open for the summer 2018 session with more than 200 class offerings.

For the first time, a STEM Summer Camp -- with full-day and half-day classes -- will be offered starting Monday, June 18. Ten full-day classes are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 20 half-day classes are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The STEM Summer Camp classes are similar to Community Education's Mechanical Engineering Junior course, which has drawn rave reviews from participants. Nicole Palmer of Arlington Heights said her daughter was always excited to attend the Mechanical Engineer Junior course because new lessons were taught each time. "The instructors did a great job introducing topics to a young group of kids in a way they were able to comprehend, remember and expand on. The class made my daughter excited to learn these concepts," she said.

Additionally, Cinderella Goes Disco, a new, two-week program for grades 2 through 6 will be offered this summer. Children will be given the opportunity to explore a wide variety of performing arts in an encouraging and supportive environment. The class is scheduled to run from Monday, July 23 through Thursday, August 2.

The summer session runs from Monday, June 4 through Wednesday, August 1. Most classes will be held at the Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road in Arlington Heights. Classes are offered in 12 categories including arts, culinary, fitness and athletics, health and wellness, languages, online learning, professional development and youth and family programs.

Online courses are also available including classes in grant writing, customer service, data analysis, digital marketing, GRE preparation and much more. Our online courses provide community members access to affordable and convenient learning opportunities.

The District 214 Community Education Summer Program Guide, scheduled for delivery to District 214 residents in mid-May, highlights the 2018-19 trips offered by Community Education Travel (CET).
