SIG YALE 2013

Teaching students, not curriculum

Note from the Director...

Hello! We are having a fantastic time at SIG-YALE so far. Our students who have traveled the globe to join us this year are finally getting their bearings and getting over jet lag. Classes are in full swing and everyone is engaged. We are navigating the campus and the dining hall in record speed now. Our instructors are stepping it up to challenge our students and I had one instructor ask me if we are accepting even smarter kids this year! (it appears, that, in deed, we are!) And we love it.


Just a reminder that even though our physical office may be closed for a meal, we will forward the number to a cell phone. We don't want to miss your call! In the event that we do miss you, we will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you!
