The Center for Gifted Education is accepting registrations for the spring Saturday/Summer Enrichment Program (SEP). The program will begin on Saturday, February 21, 2015 and will run for five consecutive Saturday sessions. Each session will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude at 12:30 p.m. SEP is an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning for students enrolled in grades K–11. It is not meant to supplant the regular school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing able youngsters to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics, humanities, and the arts. The program’s brochure is accessible through the Center’s website at http://cfge.wm.edu. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact the Precollegiate Learner Program office at (757) 221-6198 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hosting your child during our upcoming program.
