Threshold is a summer enrichment program for advanced and gifted learners. Threshold courses are designed to provide challenge and enrichment for students whose abilities enable them to benefit from experiences beyond those provided by the regular school program. Exciting classes feature higher-level thinking and active learning. Low teacher to student ratios maximize learning. Threshold offers two sessions during the second and third weeks of July. Entering K-5 students attend half-day classes and 6-10 students attend full-day classes. Each week offers unique class experiences, so students may choose to attend one or both weeks. Threshold is a day experience only. Adults must provide transportation to and from Threshold and stay overnight with out of town students. All classes meet in Abilene Hall on the Hardin-Simmons University Campus. In order to attend Threshold, qualified students must possess demonstrated intellectual ability and/or potential at the 90th percentile or above or document qacceptance in a school gifted and talented program.
