In 2019, Colorado College enters its 37th year of offering this three-week summer program for gifted elementary school and now middle and high school students. Students entering grades 1 through 9 in August are eligible for these courses, which are designed to challenge their intellectual and creative abilities. Children accepted into the GT+ program will attend one of our fun and engaging classes each morning for three weeks in June, Mon.-Fri.
The program brings to the campus teachers who are experienced and skilled in working with gifted children and who are well educated in their fields. Each teacher has a graduate teaching assistant to help provide the individual attention that gifted children need.
Application Instructions and Deadline
Early Application Deadline: March 20, 2020. After that date applications will continue to be accepted until classes are full.
Please fill out one application per child. Do not apply unless your child can attend the entire 3-week program.
We will confirm acceptance to the overall program by March 31st, reserving the right to adjust class rosters as needed depending on enrollment levels at each grade level. Class assignments will be made by the end of April.
If your child is interested in a class that is already full, they may be given either their second choice of class or placed on a wait list. Applications for all other classes will be accepted until the classes are filled. All applicants are considered at the same time after the deadline, provided all documentation and non-refundable registration fees have been received.
Once your child's acceptance into the program is confirmed, the tuition balance is due by May 31 unless you have requested scholarship assistance. Or, after paying the $25 non-refundable registration fee you may arrange for two additional installment payments of $150 due on April 1st, and $175 due on May 1st.
Tuition, Financial Assistance, and Refund Policy
Tuition for the Colorado College GT+ Summer Program is $350, which includes a $25 non-refundable registration fee. 10% of your full-price tuition covers scholarships for kids in need of financial assistance. We would also like you to know that we provide a chaperone escort from GT+ to FunQuest for kids who sign up for FunQuest (additional application and fee for FQ).
We are delighted to offer financial assistance to those learners in need. Our financial assistance is based on whether a child is receiving free or reduced lunch at school. Please note: You must provide evidence that your child is on free or reduced lunch. Evidence can be documentation from the school district, or a letter from the building principal. All information will remain confidential and paperwork will be shredded after the program is under way.
If your child is not able to attend due to unforeseen circumstances, please submit your request before June 1 for a refund of tuition paid, less the $25 registration fee.
