The Summer Studies programs at Appalachian State University, Austin College, and Rollins College are specifically designed for gifted seventh and eighth grade students. The Summer Studies programs held at the Duke University Marine Lab, Rice University, and the University of Georgia are open to eighth graders who may benefit from being in a program with high school students rather than their middle school peers. The courses at each campus cover a broad spectrum of topics developed specifically to take advantage of special facilities and expertise at each site. The Duke University Marine Lab program specializes in hands-on marine studies.
