Summer Enrichment opportunities at William & Mary

The Center for Gifted Education is accepting registrations for the 2016 Summer
Enrichment Program (SEP). The Summer program will be held on July 11-
15 for Session 1 and 18-22 for session 2 in Williamsburg, Virginia. SEP is
an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning
for students enrolled in grades K–12. It is not meant to supplant the regular
school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing able
youngsters to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics,
humanities, and the arts.

The William & Mary Law school is offering several programs for high school

The programs' brochures are accessible through the
Center’s website at If you have
any questions contact the Precollegiate Learner Program office at (757) 221-6198

Discoverers Program at the MSiC

The Discoverers 4-5 Program allows students to take a more in-depth look at science, technology, and mathematics topics. Fourth and fifth grade students select the course that piques their interest and attend this course for three consecutive Saturdays. All courses include inquiry-based “hands-on, minds-on” problem solving.  In addition, courses often have guest speakers, field trips, and/or design-and-build stations built into students’ experiences. Students will experiment, explore and discover how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fit into the world around them! The one thing common is that all the courses are fun!  The next Discoverers program will be available at the MSiC campus or at Manchester Middle School.  Students can chose one class to meet on three consecutive Saturday: April 9, 16, and 23.  See your gifted resource teacher for additional information.
