The purpose of this program is to provide enrichment for children of exceptional intellectual ability. The program does not attempt to accelerate skill development in curriculum areas. Rather, the instructional focus is on extending children's existing fund of knowledge through first-hand and creative experiences. "College for Kids" courses are designed to provide children with an earlier, more in-depth, and more multi-faceted perspective than is usually available in traditional educational settings. In addition to learning in an atmosphere that is challenging and fun, perhaps the greatest benefit for children is the opportunity to enjoy the company of intellectual peers.
Courses change each summer.
