Summer Studies

TIP's Summer Studies Program offers you three-week opportunities to work directly with gifted students in grades seven through ten. Your employment could entail working one term at a single site, or two terms at either the same or a different site.  Each position also includes on-site training time prior to student arrival.

This set of programs occurs at an array of colleges and universities and provides young scholars a chance to be exposed to college classroom instruction and residence hall living.

An administrative team oversees students’ supervision and manages program operations. Highly qualified instructional teams teach classes with approximately sixteen to eighteen students, while carefully selected residential teams implement social and recreational activities outside the classroom.

You should possess a genuine interest in the academic, social, and emotional growth of adolescents and exhibit maturity, a positive attitude, and a willingness to serve as a role model.

Review the Summer Studies Program page for families for more details about the program, including the academic and student life philosophies, daily schedule, policies, and courses offered.
