What are the classes like?

  • Classes are small. Super Saturday limits class sizes to 10 students for early grades and 18 for later grades. Each student receives individualized instruction.
  • Classes are taught by teachers who care. Most of our classes are taught by teachers who select their own course topics, so Super Saturday teachers
    are knowledgeable and excited about their subject matter, and share this enthusiasm with their students. Teachers also receive special training and ongoing support from GERI to help them meet the special needs of gifted and talented students.
  • Classes are challenging. Super Saturday courses provide authentic, hands-on learning experiences. They encourage creative thinking, the development of problem-solving skills, and individual exploration of student interests.
  • Classes are fun. Super Saturday courses are interesting and interactive. All classes give gifted students a chance to meet and have fun with other bright students who share their interests and enthusiasm for learning.
