Threshold courses are designed to provide challenge and enrichment for students whose abilities enable them to benefit from experiences beyond those provided by the regular school program.
A Summer Enrichment Program for Advanced and Gifted Learners
Exciting classes feature higher-level thinking and active learning. Low teacher to student ratios maximize learning. Each week offers unique class experiences, so students may choose to attend one or both weeks. Threshold is a day experience only. Adults must provide transportation to and from Threshold and stay overnight with out of town students. All classes meet in Abilene Hall on the Hardin-Simmons University Campus.
In order to attend Threshold, qualified students must possess demonstrated intellectual ability and/or potential at the 90th percentile or above.
