Kimberly Juniors Programs
Kimberly Juniors is a 4-year program. It provides young ladies of high school age the skills needed to function successfully in modern society and to gracefully involve themselves in the community.
The focus is on instruction in the core curriculum, including:
- Manners and Deportment
- Informed Citizenship
- Public speaking
- Parliamentary Procedure
- Drama and Dance
By developing skills necessary for endeavors in:
- College preparation
- Panhellenic Organizations
- Business Leadership
- Community Involvement
- Social Affairs
The program also strives to build confidence and self-esteem as part of its goal. There are 23 regular meetings each year and, while a young lady may join as late as the start of her junior year in high school, the core curriculum is a 4-year training program.
The culmination of the program is Senior Presentation. Presentation is an elegant evening in which each graduating senior is formally presented to adult society. This special event, while optional, allows the young lady to showcase her accomplishments among the warm circle of family and friends. It is truly the highlight of her Kimberly Juniors experience.
Augmented Educational Courses
The core curriculum is augmented over the four years with special instruction in a variety of related areas and has included classes in:
- Interview skills
- Letters of reference
- Art and music appreciation
- Skin care
- Local history
These and other related courses, together with the core curriculum are provided at a very nominal annual tuition.
Opportunities to showcase the social skills learned are provided through special meetings, performances, parties, teas and dances held during the year.
The program corresponds to the traditional high school year, beginning in August and concluding in May. Meetings are held from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, on Saturdays during the school year. Meetings are held at the Contemporary Club or at a designated alternative site.
Members have the opportunity, as Seniors to serve as elected officers. The officers preside over the meetings under the guidance of the Kimberly Juniors Advisors. A Board of Trustees directs the entire organization.
