December 6, 2016: William & Mary Spring Enrichment
The Center for Gifted Education is accepting registrations for the 2017 Spring
Saturday Enrichment Program (SEP). The 2017 Spring program will begin on
Saturday, February 25, 2017 and conclude on March 25, 2017, consisting of 5
Saturday sessions. The Spring program will be located at the William & Mary
Mason School of Business located at 101 Ukrop Way, Williamsburg, VA 23185
SEP is an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based
learning for students enrolled in grades K-12. It is not meant to supplant the
regular school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing
able students to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics,
humanities, and the arts.
The program’s brochure is accessible through the Center’s website at
