Since its inception in 1999, Summer Wonders has served over 2,500 gifted children, primarily from Austin and Central Texas but including children from other states, Korea, and Japan. Come experience the summer program that launched an entire school!
Summer Wonders is a nonresidential, full or half-day program that allows students to explore diverse subjects in a challenging, creative environment through an integrative, hands-on, non-traditional approach. We match exciting teachers with a classroom of like-leveled learners. Our enrollment in years past has included international students, children from other states, and a number of children from Texas cities outside Austin, as well as from every school district in and around Austin.
All Summer Wonders students participate in fast-paced, interactive classes with hands on activities and explorational learning. Course topics are academic in nature, presented in a fun, creative manner that inspires critical thinking and enables students to solve problems and affect discovery. Content areas include but are not limited to science, math, art, drama, social studies, literature and economics.
Summer Wonders is held during three different two-week sessions. Each session runs for two weeks, Monday through Friday.
