||Vanderbilt Program for Talented Youth (Nashville, TN)
||Vanderbilt University offers an intensive, enriched, three-week summer residential program for academically talented youth who are currently in grades seven through eleven. The goal of Vanderbilt PTY is to provide a stimulating and challenging intellectual environment, along with a full program of social and recreational activities.

My 13-year old son attended Vanderbilt for the first time this summer, studying International Law. Before the week was out, he was begging to stay longer! I think he truly found a "peer group" in this program he could relate to -- we can't wait til their next event!!

I've been involved with this program for almost five years now and I love it more than anything.
