2022 Fall Super Saturday

GER2I’s 2022 Super Saturday program provides learning experiences that explore advanced material and develop critical and creative thinking. We offer a caregiver-child format for children in PreK – 5th grades so caregivers can spend quality time and gain experience working with their children. This is required.

Classes are designed to meet the needs of academically, creatively, and artistically talented children from PreK through 5th grade so class content will be at least two academic grade levels above the child’s current school grade level. The Fall program is an opportunity for children to explore advanced material and develop critical and creative thinking skills while spending quality time with their caregivers, who gain experience working with their children.

Who is eligible for the 2022 Fall Super Saturday?

Everyone in Pre-K through 5th grade!
