Saturday Enrichment Program


Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Saturday and Summer Enrichment Programs!

We have made the decision that we will not be able to offer the Saturday Enrichment Program in 2022. As you know, the ongoing course of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in light of new variants, continues to carry implications for the ability to offer our traditional programs. However, we are busy planning for the 2022 Summer Enrichment Program with expectations of a return to Grounds. 

Teachers: download a Saturday Enrichment Program flyer for your students (flyer is for the traditional program).

ACADEMICS

In this program, our goal is to foster in children intellectual curiosity and a love of learning in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. Curriculum and instruction are designed to intellectually challenge and engage your child in authentic inquiries into major concepts and big ideas of a field through critical, creative, and problem-based thinking/learning. At SEP, we recognize that each student is an individual. To that end, our staff is dedicated to meeting the varying readiness levels, learning preferences, and interests of students in our classes. Our classes are taught by doctoral students at both the School of Education and Human Development and other departments across Grounds, as well as experts and specialists in these fields.  As a whole, our staff is dynamic, enthusiastic, and excited about working with these young scholars.
