Written by on July 2, 2014 in News

Summer Enrichment Program is a “college-for-kids” type program for students in grades 3-6 who live in southeast Iowa. To qualify, students need to be in a talented and gifted (TAG) program, or have high ITBS test scores, or be recommended by a teacher, counselor, or building principal. Or recommended and accepted for their artistic and creative characteristics by an art and music teacher.
The Great Prairie AEA Summer Enrichment 2014 program themed, “Unlock the Fun,” was held June 9 – 19 at Iowa Wesleyan College, Mt. Pleasant and June 23 – July 3 at Southeastern Community College, West Burlington.
Approximately 207 students from 16 area school districts and 3 non public schools attended Summer Enrichment in Mt. Pleasant and 426 students from 16 area school districts and 6 non public schools attended in West Burlington. These students have the opportunity to participate in more than 70 classes, taught by area educators. Classes cover the fine arts, languages, literature & writing, mathematics & logic, science, social studies, and computers. Great Prairie AEA thanks Southeastern Community College for generously donating the use of their campus for this year’s program!
