Teaching students, not curriculm

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, indeed, we are!) And we love it.

Academics In Action

We are all absolutely in awe of the work of our students! Our students are challenging one another to solve real world problems, spawning innovative ideas for the future, and, of course, enjoying academic rigor that far exceeds what they receive during the traditional academic year. The academic team affirms and celebrates the unique gifts of each student, and we truly value what all our students are teaching us along with the honor of offering quality learning.

Student Activities

Recently we completed group banners to present to the entire camp and our counselors planned some awesome individual activities for Counselor Activity Night. On Saturday the students went to Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport, and let's not forget to mention SUNDAY FUNDAY. There is never a dull moment here!!! We're all looking forward to Minute to Win It, the Music Video Competition, and of course our trip to Six Flags New England!
