    SIG at University of California, Berkeley, provides academically advanced students with an exciting and challenging educational experience at one of the nation's top public universities. Our unique program combines remarkable academic courses with cultural, social, and recreational opportunities. 

    Our academic programs are designed to fit the abilities and interests of gifted and talented students.  Because of our small classes, low teacher-student ratio, and the presence of an assistant in every class, we are able to individualize the program for each and every student. Outside of class, students  have fun! From daily recreational activities, to off-campus trips, our high achieving students learn how to unwind and experience work-life balance.


    Student Activities

    Student activities enhance the challenging academic curriculum through additional social and cultural interaction. Surrounded by like-minded peers, gifted students are more likely to feel comfortable expressing themselves and showcasing their talents. During recreational activities, students are encouraged to work and recreate together, support each other, share their unique interests, and have fun. During academic evening workshops (residential programs only), students prepare students for success in the 21st century world.
