Dominican University Main Campus - 7900 Division Street - River Forest IL

The Summer Gifted and Talented Program at Dominican University serves the academic and social needs of highly motivated gifted and talented students entering grades 2-8 in the Fall. Enriching and challenging instruction is rooted in discovery-based learning, differentiated instruction and assessments, flexible grouping, hands-on activities, real world connections, and inpidual student evaluations. Class sizes are limited to 16-20 students maximum, with teaching assistants assigned as necessary for additional classroom supervision, management, and instructional planning.

Students are accepted into courses that reflect their demonstrated academic area of strength in math, science, and/or verbal reasoning. Nationally-normed standardized test scores ranked in the 90%ile are pre-qualified for enrollment pending prerequisites or course availability. Students without scores in the 90%ile may apply 1-2 teacher recommendation(s) for consideration. Please download a copy of the form directly from our website, or contact the Program Director/Gifted Office for any questions regarding the teacher recommendation form or admissions process.

Tuition is $220 per course per week, plus any applicable supply fees. Tuition for all four weeks is only $200 per course, or $800 total.
