compiled by the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education (KAGE)

 

The summer programs listed here are just a sample of the opportunities available to gifted students. Your child’s teacher or district G/T coordinator may be able to provide you with additional options. We found that many Kentucky universities and community colleges offer summer programs that would be of interest to high ability young people. We suggest thinking about your child’s interests and looking accordingly - for instance, many musical and theatre companies, museums, and nature preserves and parks offer summer camps. Thanks to everyone who sent information.

 

PLEASE consider becoming a member of KAGE and supporting efforts such as

this compilation of opportunities.
