Summer Scholars Residential and Commuter Program (Grades 7-10)

The Summer Scholars Residential Program held Sunday through Friday is a residential program designed to develop the academic, leadership, and/or creative skills of rising 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students. These students have demonstrated high levels of ability in their school work, in the arts, or in their daily lives.

The Center for Gifted Education will NOT present its regular academic enrichment summer programs for the 2019-2020 Academic School Year.

We are looking forward to the future. We are working on creating Pop-up Programs for the PreK through 2nd graders, 3rd through 6th graders, and a Fall 2020 Adolescent Conference for the students who are rising into the 7th through 10th grades. Please check back on our website and our Facebook page for updated information.
