The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) provides unique opportunities for high-ability students to attend Saturday and summer enrichment courses at William & Mary and in Richmond, Virginia. The target audience for SEP is students currently enrolled in grades K–9. This enrichment program enables students to explore specialized topics not typically studied in the regular classroom.

Program Philosophy

SEP ClassSEP is an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning for students. The program is not meant to supplant the regular school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing able youngsters to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics, humanities, and arts. Course activities are compatible with the expected achievement of talented students at specific grade and age levels.

Behaviors fostered by the gifted learner program include the ability to:

  • apply process skills used in individual fields of inquiry,
  • recognize problems and approaches to problem solving,
  • understand and appreciate individual differences, and
  • become a self-directed learner.
