Dear College for Kids and Mercer Youth University Students and Parents!

Welcome to Mercer University's 2018 Summer Enrichment Programs in creative writing, mathematics, science and social studies for Georgia’s elementary and middle school students. For more than 24 years, Mercer has educated elementary school students in the College for Kids creative writing program and published their stories and poems in a hardbound book which we present to the student and his or her school. Over the years, we added programs in math, science and social studies  and invited 6th through 8th grade students to our Mercer Youth University programs. We offer writing, math, science and social studies on the Atlanta and Macon Campuses as well as at our Regional Academic Centers in Henry County (McDonough) and Douglas County (Lithia Springs). Parents, we hope to see your children in our enrichment programs which are designed to strengthen and stretch their academic skills in these key subject areas. I encourage you to explore our website for the details of the programs and call or write  our Student Success Team with any questions you may have. Young Scholars, I look forward to seeing many of you in Mercer’s classrooms this June.
