SIG provides academically advanced students with an exciting and challenging educational experience. The program combines remarkable academic courses with cultural, social, and recreational opportunities. The academic program is central to the design and purpose of the Summer Institute for the Gifted. To this core, we add evening entertainment performances, weekend off-campus trips, creativity workshops and events, numerous social activities and a full recreational program.
The Summer Institute for the Gifted Day Program provides instruction in more than 30 academic and creative courses during its regular academic schedule as well as recreational activities every day. Courses are taught at levels appropriate for academically gifted students in grades one through six, covering humanities, mathematics and sciences, and multidisciplinary courses. Every student selects three courses and has a recreational period. Each class meets five times a week for 90 minutes each.
