Great Prairie AEA’s Summer Enrichment Program Held at Iowa Wesleyan College and Southeastern Community College

Summer Enrichment Program is a “college-for-kids” type program for students in grades 3-6 who live in southeast Iowa.  To qualify, students need to be in a talented and gifted (TAG) program, or have high ITBS test scores, or be recommended by a teacher, counselor, or building principal. Or recommended and accepted for their artistic and creative characteristics by an art and music teacher.

The Great Prairie AEA Summer Enrichment 2015 program was held June 8 – 18 at Iowa Wesleyan College, Mt. Pleasant and June 22 – July 2 at Southeastern Community College, West Burlington.

Approximately 180 students from 16 area school districts attended Summer Enrichment in Mt. Pleasant and  379  students from 16 area school districts and 6 non-public schools attended in West Burlington. These students have the opportunity to participate in more than 90 classes, taught by area educators. Classes cover the fine arts, languages, literature & writing, mathematics & logic, science, social studies, and computers.

Great Prairie AEA thanks Southeastern Community College for generously donating the use of their campus for this year’s program! Special THANK YOU to Brittney Leach
Summer Enrichment Coordinator!
