About 215 gifted public school students will be given $875 each to attend the Summer Advanced Gifted Education Academy at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The Clark County School Board approved the program at a total cost of $188,125, but it won’t cost the Clark County School District a cent. Funding comes from a federal grant for highly gifted students.
The summer program teaches middle and high school students over three weeks.
High school students will have the opportunity to earn three college-level honors credits and one high school enrichment credit. Middle school students can earn one college-level honors credit and eighth-graders can earn one high school enrichment credit.
