We have been in the summer experience industry for more than 35 years.
In our industry, preparedness is paramount, and we pride ourselves in our ongoing commitment to student safety and security. Our years of experience and our breadth of campus offerings means we’ve seen it all. We've created safety and security plans to ensure our highly trained staff are ready to respond to any emergency.
We realize there is a lot of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 situation. What remains certain, however, is our commitment to the safety and security of our students, parents, staff, and university partners. All decisions we make are rooted in this philosophy of students and families first.
To assist in our planning, we've created an internal Coronavirus Taskforce to monitor the global situation and provide recommendations on how SIG can adapt. Our goal is to provide proactive, timely and transparent communication so our families can make the most informed decisions about their summer plans.See Our Latest COVID Updates

Student safety isn't a one-person job; it takes a community approach. That's why we've partnered with experts in the field to keep our students protected. We also have partners that provide emergency services should they be needed.
We've been delivering experiences to gifted, talented, and creative students for over 35 years. And after nearly four decades, we are still learning. Safety and security challenges are always changing. Each year, we evaluate and evolve our safety protocols to assure our standards and processes are top-notch and meet current trends.
