CSM’s New Summer Flight Academy Encourages Students to Soar

Kids’ and Teen College at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) continues with its tradition of offering comprehensive, summer enrichment programs for children ages 6 to 17 years old. CSM’s half-day or full-day programs allow kids and teens to design a summer experience specific to their interests, while assuring parents that their children are receiving memorable lessons with trusted instructors.

“Children and teens can explore cooking, coding and art, or choose to STEM forward with our virtual reality activities,” explained CSM Youth Program Coordinator Anthony Warrick. “This year we are thrilled to be introducing our CSM Flight Academy.”

The CSM’s new 2019 Summer Flight Academy offers a fun week of aviation classroom experiences (ACE) at its Leonardtown Campus with flight skills development, confidence building and teamwork in a flight simulation setting. The flight simulator flying will include ground operations, takeoff and basics of flight, approaching an airport and landing, navigation and finding your way, loading and flying local area navigation missions, executing Inspired to Soar and Guardians of the Game missions, and Free Play in aircraft of your choice. Special reduced pricing is being made available to students thanks to grant funding from The Patuxent Partnership.

Some of the many new programs being offered this summer are Harry Potter: Hogwarts Express; Live to Dance; Battle Royale: Make Your First Fortnight Style Video Game; and the ABCs of Ethical Hacking. Also new this summer and offered at the La Plata, Leonardtown and Prince Frederick campuses is the Taste of Mexico – a cooking class for ages 10-13 that explores the traditions and culture of a fiesta-worthy menu of Mexican dishes and the techniques on how to prepare them.

Registration for CSM Kids’ and Teen College classes and programs can occur up until the week before the start of each program, however parents are encouraged to register children and teenagers as early as possible to guarantee a slot in the class. Before and after care is available.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
