Summer Programs

Since 1982, the Center for Bright Kids Regional Talent Center has offered summer programs for high-interest, high-ability students. Rooted in the talent development model, CBK summer programs offer students the opportunity to study with bright, motivated peers, enhance their preparation for advanced coursework, and establish long-lasting friendships with students from across the country and around the world. Students with exceptional ability entering grades 4-12 or ages 8-17 are offered a varied selection of enrichment and/or acceleration courses on campus at the University of Colorado Boulder. Together with outstanding instructors, students pursue one course of study in which they discover the optimal match among personal interest, academic ability, and pace of instruction. Overall, challenging academics and supervised extracurricular activities in a residential living and learning community enable students to gain academic and social confidence during these intensive summer programs. Join us this summer on the CU Boulder campus at CBK for the next step on a journey of lifelong learning!
