For more than 30 years, Peaks and Potentials has givenhigh-ability/high-potential students entering grades 5-7 (in Fall 2014) the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in various subject areas.
A signature from an appropriate school official is required for the student's acceptance.
Instructors are MSU faculty, graduate students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as director and counselors throughout the week.
Students have the option of staying on campus or commuting each day. All classes emphasize personal instruction and small group interaction as well as a "hands-on" approach. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.
