Summer Academic Enrichment Programs for Gifted and Academically Talented Students

SIG Offers Residential and Day Summer Programs at Prestigious Campuses Nationwide

A leader in gifted education since 1984, the Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG) provides academic summer and online programs for academically talented children ages 9-17.

Through more than 30 years of experience, SIG has crafted a 3-week program that combines challenging academics with social, cultural, and recreational opportunities that enrich children’s natural talents and abilities, as well as nurture their social development.

Challenging and Fun Courses in STEM (Science, Technology, & Math) and Humanities

SIG brings the excitement of science, invention and technology to academically talented students through innovative STEM courses, as well as thought-provoking classes in Humanities and Visual/Performing Arts. This integration of science, technology, art, design, and culture gives SIG students the tools to compete in a highly competitive global environment and encourages them to pursue their passions and explore new interests, having fun and making friends along the way.
