Online Programs Return for SIG Spring & Summer!

SIG Online programs return for Spring and Summer 2020!

Understanding the need for avenues to enrich young minds during this continued global social distancing in the current pandemic, SIG is providing new online learning programs, starting at the end of April and continuing through the summer with three additional SIG Online Intensive sessions. For students unable to attend a SIG program on campus, the summer sessions will also include a virtual social component.

Spring SIG Online Learning (6-week) Session

  • Program Dates: April 27-June 5
  • Application Deadline: Friday, April 17, 2020
  • Tuition per course: $425
  • Application fee: $25

Spring Eligibility Note: As eligibility documentation may be difficult to obtain quickly, SIG will accept one parent recommendation form for Spring 2020 courses.

The spring SIG Online Learning Program is a 6-week program that follows a STEAM + independent study format facilitated by instructors via discussion forums and online activities. The purpose of the course is for students to engage in unique learning experiences in varied areas of interest and then to apply their new knowledge to personally meaningful products. Successful completion of a course requires about 4-6 hours of engagement time per week and varies from student to student based on their ability, proficiency with the online platform, and their interest in the topics.

The summer SIG Online Intensive Program sessions offer students a virtual opportunity to experience our unique onsite courses available for the 2020 SIG summer.  Students work on learning activities each day and attend virtual face-time sessions each week for course content and social experiences. This program is intensive in that it provides new material daily and compresses our usual longer online learning courses into a 3-week span. Additionally, course instructors will host and facilitate a fun social forum and/or virtual face-time session each week for students to interact with their like-minded peers through non-academic social experiences which will focus on building friendships, socializing with new people, finding and sharing common interests, expanding awareness of culture and diversity, and practicing social skills. Successful completion of a course requires about 5-7 hours of work time per week that includes the academic and social components of the program. Students need access to the online courses daily during the week to accom­plish all tasks in a timely fashion.
