Classes with a STEAM Focus

SIG course periods provide a robust and challenging academic experience that offer students a variety of instructional learning opportunities. These experiences develop personal passions, divergent/convergent thinking, and creative production through collaborative work groups, independent investigations, experiments, interactive explorations, research, performance tasks, and so much more.

With small class sizes and low student-teacher ratios, course instructors and teaching assistants provide attention and flexibility based on students' readiness, leaving room to allow for exploration of students' personal interests.

Course Structure

Each course block now lasts approximately 2.5 hours with two 10-minute breaks built into the course session. We can assure you that students won't be taught using a lecture style! Students will engage in a wide range of learning methods, from mini-lessons, hands-on activities, interactive experiences, and research exploration. 

We know the importance of passion exploration to gifted, talented, and creative youth, especially at a young age. That means being given the time to dive deep into course content and then having time to process that content in new, meaningful ways. SIG’s course structure allows students to do that and more! With the opportunity for students to develop deep and complex thinking with topics they love, SIG courses will leave them eager for more.
