The SIG STEAM+ curriculum focuses on applying creative thinking across multiple disciplines. Through an innovative curriculum that spans all facets of STEAM, plus humanities and fitness, SIG challenges students to utilize knowledge of different disciplines to propose creative solutions. At SIG, we encourage students to explore their interests while introducing them to new and intriguing topics. Students gain strong research and creative problem-solving skills vital to college and professional careers.
Classes focus on discovering innovative solutions to real-world problems. Students learn collaboration through working with like minded peers to find creative solutions. Problem-based learning helps students embrace self-directed learning.
At SIG, students are encouraged to draw upon their existing knowledge in various STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and the humanities to find productive solutions to authentic real-world challenges. Gifted students often exhibit extraordinary conceptual thinking and thrive in an environment that allows them to combine reasoning with imagination without the restraints of sticking to a single academic discipline.
When faced with open-ended problems in SIG classes, students have the flexibility to explore their interests while gaining exposure to new topics. Due to our small classes, low teacher-student ratio, and teaching assistants, we are able to individualize the program for each and every student.
SIG combines challenging academics with social, cultural, and recreational opportunities to nurture students' social skills as well as their natural talents. SIG students gain life-long friendships through meeting like-minded peers who are accepting and encouraging.
SIG welcomes all gifted, talented and creative students from across the globe and celebrates the enrichment provided by diversity of thought and culture.
SIG offers on-site and online summer programs. We offer 2 and 3 weeks in length programs including Residential, Day, and Day + Evenings and Saturdays. All online programs focus on SIG’s STEAM+ curriculum through virtual instruction and engagement.
As many school districts across the country face tight budgets and funding cuts, gifted education programs are suffering reduction or elimination. As this trend continues, an increasing number of gifted children are not receiving sufficient guidance to maximize their full potential through school programs. In addition to continuous advocacy, there is now an unprecedented need for dynamic and innovative approaches for supplementing the education of our world’s most gifted, talented, and creative students. The unique, targeted, and experienced curriculum of the SIG program provides your students with the ideal educational complement, ensuring that they receive the individual attention they require.
