Student activities enhance the challenging academic curriculum through additional social and cultural interaction. These activities include:
After the last course period, students may participate in swimming, tennis, basketball, volleyball, soccer, chess, creative arts and clubs, or relax and hang out with friends. Activities vary by campus.
These events may include movie nights, counselor group activities, Scavenger Hunts, Rock'n Bingo, pool parties, and local area exploration. Evening activities also include SIG traditions such as Brain Bowl (academic trivia challenge), Game Night, and the Final Hoorah.
Students participating in middle and high school programs will have the opportunity to participate in weekend trips (1 trip per weekend) off-campus.
Channeling shows such as Jeopardy! and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, students get a chance to work in a team environment to show off all those interesting facts that they have accumulated in the last decade or so. Brain Bowl is the ultimate SIG challenge, combining speed, intellect and knowledge. Set in a game show environment, contestants answer challenging questions in art, history and government, geography, literature, and science and technology.
Gentlemen, dust off those tuxedos and ladies, don those evening gowns for an evening of chance. (Just kidding, you don't have to dress up!) Transport yourself to Monte Carlo and tap into the strategist within. In this world of games you can test your skills with regards to the intricacies of probability. Whether you are an avid participant or a casual observer, it is sure to be a night of possibilities.
The culminating event! Celebrate your time together with dancing, laughter, and a slide show to reminisce about your time at SIG.
SIG Academic Evening Workshops prepare students for success in the 21st century world. All students are required to participate in one workshop of their choice in the evening for the duration of the program, and workshops are only offered for residential students for grades 6-12. These workshops offer a foundation for interdisciplinary and integrative skills and ways of knowing on the premise that intellectual pursuits can develop and enhance one's skills for academic, future careers, and civic responsibilities in and to the world.
*All activities listed are a sample of activities offered and will vary by campus. Activities for students in grades K-5 only include 30 minutes of recreational time after lunch.
