Spring Super Saturday 2024

The Spring Super Saturday program is a program designed to meet the needs of academically, creatively, and artistically talented children from Kindergarten through 8th grade, with class content at least two academic grade levels above the child’s current school grade level.

The Spring program is an opportunity for children to explore advanced material and develop critical and creative thinking skills while forging new friendships and exploring their interests in a hands-on and minds-on way.


Spring Super Saturday welcomes students who are currently enrolled in grades K-8.
