Create. Explore. Build. Perform.


Parkland College offers students, ages 8-13, an opportunity to experience learning in fun, innovative ways with hands-on, interactive classes. Many classes are designed using a STEAM model, while others offer young students experiences to explore potential careers, or help students develop and build key skills for the future. During the academic year, activities will challenge young students to try new experiences and advance their skills while making new friends. Our small classes offer students of all abilities an opportunity to excel. 


Let us help your youth explore new interests or pinpoint possible career options. Either way, we will provide you with an unforgettable experience!
