Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth

This program gives students finishing grades 5 through 8 an opportunity to explore their current interests and passions with like-minded peers in a college setting. Students will spend one week taking an enrichment course designed specifically for advanced middle school learners on the UW–Madison campus. Not only will students explore their area of study, they will also have the opportunity to spark their curiosity with on-campus field trips during the week.
