Encore Kids College

Encore Kids College Mission:

Encore Kids College (EKC) is an after school program hosted by The Capitol Encore Academy (TCEA). The mission of Encore Kids College, through a joint collaboration with local artists and organizations, is to provide access to arts activities and creative practices for K-12 children in our community.

Encore Kids College Vision:

Encore Kids College seeks to provide the access for enrichment activities that support creative practices for all K-12 students in our greater community. We believe this access to enrichment will assist in promoting not only increased skill, but also a positive lifestyle for children. Offering choices to students to participate in additional learning opportunities encourages growth in both arts and academics. In addition to student learning, TCEA wants to support and encourage the use of the local resources by establishing relationships between the school, family, and the community.


Encore Kids College serves an after-school resource, provided by The Capitol Encore Academy, for all children in our community. Similar to a college catalog of courses, Encore Kids College will offer a variety courses through individual instructors from the local community. Students are not required to attend TCEA to access these programs, but priority is given to TCEA students. All participants are expected to uphold ethical and safety practices to affiliate with Encore Kids College. The Capitol Encore Academy serves as a host organization, and does not profit from or charge instructors fees for Encore Kids College.

Encore Kids College will offer multiple arts disciplines, creative practices and similar courses. Some courses offer rolling admission, while others are offered on a set schedule. Please refer to the course catalog and contact the instructor for information on specific courses. The individual instructor offers classes in sessions, Monday-Friday between 3:00 and 6:00pm. Date and times of program offerings are subject to change based on size and demand. Detailed information, materials required and the cost of individual course can be obtained by contacting individual instructors. The instructor of the course sets tuition, fees, schedule, and course content, following the mission, vision and ethics of Encore Kids College. Parents and students will select options available based on age, content, day/time, and other eligibility criteria set by instructors.
