SIG provides gifted and talented students with an exciting and challenging summer experience. The program combines remarkable academic learning experiences with cultural, social and recreational opportunities. The academic program is central to the design and purpose of SIG. Our program provides students with academic challenges designed to fit their abilities and interests. It also provides them with the opportunity to engage with other students who have similar abilities and interests. Because of the small class size, low teacher-student ratio, and the presence of a program assistant in every class, SIG is able to individualize the program for every student.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Summer Institute for the Gifted-Day Program provides instruction in more than 30 courses during its regular academic schedule and engages students in 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 multi-disciplinary courses. Every student selects three courses and has a recreational period. Each class meets five times a week for 90 minutes each.
