Included in the SYM is a STEAM+E model: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math + Entrepreneurship. With SYM and the STEAM+E model, Kituuma & Co. provides hands-on activities and training for youth that underscores the individual importance of each facet as well as the interdisciplinary nature of each subject. Furthermore, we promote an entrepreneurial mindset as well as exposure to entrepreneurs in these fields. These experiences are inspiring, engaging and empowering.
Students in grades 1-12, school districts, PTO groups and businesses seeking to advance their corporate social responsibility initiatives, benefit from our programming.
There is a shortage of professionals to meet the present and rising demand for careers in STEAM fields
SYM is different from other STEAM and STEM oriented program providers. At Kituuma & Co., we provide program development and implementation services to our clients from start to finish or anywhere in between, with critical project management oversight.
We have the expertise, the strategy and the network to curate enrichment programs that provide these experiences. From single-day workshops and speaking engagements to extracurricular science clubs and independent non-profit entities. We are able to provide support at whatever stage the program is in, from conceptualization to implementation or data analysis regarding outcomes.

We partnered with Newton Public Schools' Creative Arts and Science (CAS) program to provide a hands-on workshop to 3rd graders at the Horace Mann School.
“Thank you again for working with CAS to bring your presentation to students. It was very well received. I'd like to offer your program to all of the schools in Newton but with some modifications.”

Frequently asked questions
What forms of payment are accepted for tuition?
With convenience, efficiency and security in mind, we use an automated payment processing system. Our system allows us to process tuition payments safely and efficiently through an electron funds transfer (EFT) from your checking or savings account. To participate in this program, please complete our "Automatic Payment Authorization" form. Your family's account balance will then be paid automatically on the due date of each billing period. For more information, please read our Automatic Payment Processing FAQ.
Because we cannot efficiently accommodate two systems at once, accounts not authorizing EFT will be charged a $25 handling fee each billing period. We also accept personal checks, certified checks or money order. Payments should be mailed to our address or submitted into one of our tuition drop-boxes. Drop-boxes are located in the main building (Building #3), The Big Red Barn (#2) and in The Dahlhouse (#1), The Little Engine That Could (lower level), The Vestibule (main level) and the administrative office (upper level).
When is tuition due?
During the school year, tuition is due by the 15th of each month. For “Summer on the Farm,” tuition is due by the first day of each respective session.
How is tuition billed during the school year?
Tuition is billed in 10 equal amounts from August 15 through May 15.
We take the total cost of tuition for the entire school year and divide it into 10 equal installments. Regardless of how many days are in each pay period, the tuition charge remains the same each month.
How is tuition billed for "Summer on the Farm?"
Our Summer on the Farm program and the school year are separate. Summer on the Farm consists of two 6-week sessions. Full payment for each session is due on the first day of the session.
How do I get verification for my flex-spending account?
Submit a completed flex-spending form, including dates and amount, to Matt Dahl. The form will be returned to you in your child’s classroom mailbox. We do not accept debit/credit cards (ex: TASC card) as forms of payment. You will need to submit a claim for reimbursement. Check with your employer with any questions regarding your dependent care plans.
If you're enrolled in KELC's Automatic Payment Processing system, you will have online access to your childcare financial information. You may view payment history, print receipts and obtain payment summaries for your financial needs.
