BRYAN COUNTY -- The Choctaw Nation is starting a new summer education program.  

It's the brainchild of Joy Colbreath, who says she started the program to help students with their studies during the summer. 

The Choctaw Nation sponsored program focuses on helping kids in math and science.

It is targeted toward students in kindergarten through third grade.

Right now the program is available in Durant, Calera, Colbert, Silo and Achille.  

"The kids love it, in the afternoons they don't want to go home, they want to stay here because they enjoy learning, and have a good time, and the teachers genuinely care about their students here, and so the kids really don't want to leave at the end of the day."

The program costs 300 thousand dollars to put on, and is paid for by the Choctaw nation.  

They also say they have plans to expand.
