My two boys attended this program for a total of three years (2004, 2005, 2006). The offered courses and afternoon enrichment activities change each year; they are well planned and executed. Course subject materials are of interest to gifted students, and are appropriately fast paced. The course teachers are a combination of University Professors, Graduate Students, and Public School Teachers/ TAG Coordinators. My kids had a great time, were intellectually challenged, and learned to navigate a University campus! Supervision is adequate, and other participants are welcoming to out of area students. Don't miss out on the afternoon seminars. Kids get to visit labs and departments & talk with researchers.

My kids have been going here for years, and love the program, teachers and setting.
