Saturday & Summer Enrichment Program


As you know, the ongoing course of the COVID-19 pandemic with infection rates surging both nationally and regionally has required schools across the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation to alter plans for the 2020-21 academic year. Of primary concern for all is the protection of the health and well-being of students, staff members, and the broader community. SEP recognizes the efforts by the University and our K-12 schools to fulfill their educational missions in the best way possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, given the ongoing pandemic, SEP is unable to offer the Saturday Enrichment Program in 2021. We are hopeful that we will be able to offer the Summer Enrichment Program on grounds in the Summer of 2021, and the Saturday Enrichment Program in the Winter of 2022. We wish you all good health.

Fostering talent development in gifted youth and their teachers.

In coordination with the Curry School of Education and Human Development, the Saturday and Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) seeks to offer gifted and/or high ability students a rich and engaging learning experience outside the regular classroom environment. Modeling best practices in curriculum and instruction, the SEP staff works as a community to maximize potential in each student and foster a passion for lifelong learning.

SEP hosts two programs throughout the year.  The Saturday program serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  The Summer residential program hosts students in rising fifth through eleventh grades.  Please click on the corresponding links for further program and application information.

Traditionally, the Saturday Program is offered every winter, on 5 consecutive Saturday mornings in January and February. This program offers academic enrichment classes for students in grades Kindergarten through 5th. In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SEP is unable to offer its program in 2021.
