CTD's Summer Program provides life-changing residential and commuter programs for academically gifted children, PreK-grade 12, at Northwestern University and other Chicago-area sites. Students delve into a subject of intrigue, build upon strengths and connect with a community of peers. Our fun, hands-on courses engage and challenge advanced learners. Enrichment and credit courses are offered in a range of subject areas. Single and multi-week programs are available.
The CTD Summer Leapfrog Program provides fast-paced enrichment courses for students age 4-grade 3 who have demonstrated a keen, early interest in learning. Your child can have an amazing summer adventure taking courses such as Extreme Code Breaking, Grossology: Fascinating Systems of the Human Body, Sign of the Gorilla: Extraordinary Apes or Treehouse Architecture. Half- and full-day Leapfrog courses are offered mornings and afternoons at six Chicago area sites: Chicago, Elmhurst, Lake Forest, Naperville, Palatine and Skokie. Multiple one-week sessions are held in late June and throughout the month of July.
If your child loves to ask "how" or "why" or excitedly begins after-school conversations with "did you know..." it's time to apply to the CTD Summer Program! Visit our website for complete information and convenient online application.
