2023 Fall Super Saturday

Ignite your child’s potential with GER2I’s Fall Super Saturday program designed for students from Pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade and their caregivers! Join us for learning experiences where curiosity takes flight and boundless possibilities await.

Classes are designed to meet the needs of academically, creatively, and artistically talented children, so class content will be at least two academic grade levels above the child’s current school grade placement. The fall program is an opportunity for children to explore new concepts, develop critical and creative thinking skills while working alongside their caregivers, who will also gain insight into their child’s abilities, interests, and ways of thinking in an academic environment.

Who is eligible for the 2023 Fall Super Saturday?

All students currently in Pre-K through 5th grade and their caregivers are welcome! Due to space limitations, one caregiver per child is recommended.

When and where?

Saturdays, October 21st and 28th with all classes beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Beering Hall of Liberal Arts and Education on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. Classes end at different times: PreK-K classes end at 12:00 p.m., classes for grades 1-2 end at 1:00 p.m., and grades 3-5 classes will end at 3:00 p.m.

What’s unique about Fall Super Saturday?

Our Fall Super Saturdays offer an informal academic setting where caregivers bond, learn, and conquer academic challenges alongside their children. No other program in our area provides this kind of meaningful interaction between children and the adults who care for them. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity!
