Saturday & Summer Enrichment Program
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Saturday and Summer Enrichment programs! We will not offer the Saturday Enrichment Program in 2022. However, we are busy planning for the 2022 Summer Enrichment Program with hopes for and expectations of a return to grounds. As you know, the ongoing course of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in light of the Delta variant, continues to carry implications for the ability to offer our traditional programs. As always, our 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. While we are robustly planning for a return to grounds in the summer of 2022, some uncertainty remains and, thus, we are not entirely certain of the nature of the program or in what modality a program will be offered (remote v. in-person v. no program). We will make these decisions in consultation with School of Education and Human Development and UVA leadership in the coming weeks and months. These decisions will also address safety protocols for an on-Grounds program. Please check on our website where you will find updated information as these decisions are solidified.
In coordination with the 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. Fosters talent development in gifted youth and their teachers.
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.
Saturday Enrichment Program
Traditionally, the Saturday Program is offered every winter, on five consecutive Saturday mornings in January and February. This program offers academic enrichment classes for students in grades Kindergarten through 5th. At present, we have made the decision that the Saturday Enrichment Program will not be offered in 2022 given the ongoing Covid pandemic. We are hopeful for a return to normal in 2023, and we will make all programmatic decisions in consultation with School of Education and Human Development and UVA leadership in the coming months. Please check on our website where you will find updated information as these decisions are solidified
