What makes Super Summer Super?

Small Classes - class sizes are limited to 12 students for Kindergarten to 2nd and 16 students for 3rd - 4th to enable our instructors to work effectively with each student. 

High-Quality Teachers – Our caring teachers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about working with GERI students. They receive special training and ongoing support from the GERI team to meet the special needs of high-ability children, to ensure that students get personalized attention. 

Challenge – Classes provide authentic, hands-on learning experiences that encourage creative thinking, problem solving, and exploration of student interests in an environment that values creativity, diversity, and achievement. 

Enjoyment – Students enjoy learning interesting content in an interactive environment. High-ability students have the opportunity to connect with other bright students who share their enthusiasm for learning in an enjoyable setting. 

Community of Talents - During this part of the daily schedule, students work with staff to understand and appreciate their strengths and the strengths of others. Collaboration, communication, and thinking skills are emphasized using simulations and scenarios to help them understand how "together, we can make a difference in the world."
