Summer 2018 Gifted Students Academy

A series of educational experiences
for academically gifted students, grades 1-8

 

The Gifted Students Academy, GSA, is an intensive summer program for gifted middle school students, grades 1st through 8th. Participants select courses in each of the major subject areas of math, science, language arts, social studies and the arts. Courses are offered in one-week modules and span over a four-week period. GSA offers a strong foundation of disciplinary studies while providing students a sampling of campus life. (Students in grades one through three attend as commuters only.)

 

Due to challenges related to City and UCI construction that will occur in and near residential halls, the GSA residential option will not be held during summer 2018. Commuter program continues.

 

There is a possibility for a STEM international UCI residential offering. If this residential program occurs, it will be held from July 15th through July 28th. US students will be able to reside for 1 or 2 weeks. Details for this program will post on April 15th or sooner. Enrollment will be limited. Students attending this program will attend regular GSA classes throughout the day and join with students from China for evening activities. Students registering as commuters at this time may later add a residential component to their commuter program. Please e-mail ucigiftedstudents@gmail.com if you wish to be notified of the progress of this potential program.

"I just wanted to let you know that both my children had a terrific time with the program this summer. We really appreciated the approach and enthusiasm of your instructors, and especially of the staff ratio. I think their memory of your weeks are of excitement, and well balanced mind and body work. We look forward to next year."
