FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Great Minds of Connecticut, held at the Pequot Library in Fairfield, offers students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to explore literature and/or creative writing with college professors and other gifted scholars.
Summer sessions will begin on June 27 and run through Aug. 5.
Great Minds provides two-week sessions that are designed to facilitate intellectual and personal growth with a maximum student to faculty ratio of 5:1. Students will engage in lively discussion and activities without grades or pressure—just for the love of learning.
This summer, students will explore the theme “The World Outside of Human Experience” through classic literature and/or written expression. Morning sessions will focus on literary analysis while afternoon sessions will cover various modes of creative writing. Students may select from either or both sessions in a two-week span.
Returning students, ages 16 and up, can apply for the Great Minds Teaching Assistant Program, in which older students are empowered to provide guidance to younger students. The Teaching Assistant Program helps build confidence and leadership skills that students will need as they transition to college.
Registration is open now. For more information, click here or contact Great Minds Director Susan Steiz at 203-247-5915 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pequot Library is at 720 Pequot Ave., Fairfield.
