Fall Super Saturdays:

October 19, 26, and November 2, 2024 | 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM CT


“Super Saturdays allows me to work with other kids who think like me but differently from me too. It helps me grow.” 
Abigail Blais, 6th grader

Super Saturdays encourages students in grades 1 – 6 who are of high ability or have high interest in a topic to pursue their passions outside the regular classroom. Through a minds-on, hands-on approach to learning, students explore and investigate such areas as math, art, science, history, writing, music, and performance under the thoughtful guidance of experienced teachers and in the company of enthusiastic, like-minded peers. Each year, over 1000 students enjoy the benefits of Super Saturdays.

The Center offers two, three-week sessions of Super Saturdays each year, the first in the early fall and the second in the winter.

Super Saturdays presents young, gifted learners with the opportunity to continue the learning process in a student-centered environment that celebrates learning for the sake of knowledge. It opens new doors of learning at an age when it is absolutely critical to inspire the minds of gifted learners.
