Registration is now under way for the Summer Academy at Vanderbilt for the Young. SAVY provides a dynamic, fast-paced curriculum experience to qualifying gifted children in kindergarten through grade six. Vanderbilt faculty and master teachers trained in gifted education implement an accelerated, research-based curriculum for all SAVY courses. Students can choose to enroll in SAVY for either one or two weeks this summer.

SAVY is for gifted students in kindergarten and grades 1-6 who typically test at the 95th percentile and above on either verbal or nonverbal sections of academic achievement or ability tests. The program offers small summer classes designed for the exceptionally talented and motivated learner.

Current course offerings include Chinese, MoliStone math, lego robotics, botany, biology and algebra. Students choose one course for the entire week.

Classes are limited to approximately 12 students for K-2 and approximately 15 students for grades 3-6 and are held Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Summer dates are July 11–15 and July 18-22.
