"In schools, children need to have a place of belonging. They need to know they're accepted. They have to find their niche, that thing they’re good at,” said KCPS Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Collier.

High School Students Attend KU Design Camp

For some students, imagining a career in design is just a dream. Thanks to a special partnership with the University of Kansas (KU), ten KCPS students were able to make that dream a reality.

In June, students spent a week at KU’s Summer Design Camp. While residing on campus, students participated in workshops to learn about the fields of graphic design, photography, architecture, interior design, animation and publication design.  

The camp was designed to help students consider a design career and learn about potential scholarships to one of the highest-rated design schools in the country. Congratulations to our students as they grow and participate in unique experiences to cultivate their creative interests and skills.
