Learn about WMU program for academically talented kids
Oct. 4, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Parents who think their sixth and seventh graders would benefit from having a more challenging school day are invited to attend upcoming meetings explaining the process for applying to the Academically Talented Youth Program at Western Michigan University.
ATYP, administered by WMU's Lee Honors College, offers accelerated-learning courses in math and English. The program has been adapted to meet local needs and is open to students regardless of their ability to pay.
Classes meet at WMU but the program allows participants to remain enrolled in, and connected with, their local school districts. Informational meetings have been scheduled around Kalamazoo County to explain the program to parents and their prospective ATYP students.
