Unique and Innovative Programming Now Available All Year Long
Invest in our flagship Science & Leadership program, the Semester School:
In four semesters of operation, we have graduated 54 extraordinary high school girls from our Semester School. Our Fall semester runs for 16 weeks, August through December. Our Spring semester runs likewise for 16 weeks, February though June. Our Campus Expansion (see below) will allow us to double the number of girls in each semester's cohort.
Invest in our latest adventure, Summer Programming:
Our inaugural Summer 2012 Programs extend the CSG experience to middle school girls, women and educators. Summer programs are 5 to 7 days long and use as their base of operations our beautiful Freeport campus.
Greater Capacity = Greater Opportunity = Campus Expansion
Invest in our Campus Expansion:
It has always been our intention to expand the range of opportunities available at CSG. Opening the Semester School in 2010 with a capacity of 15 students per semester has allowed us to pilot and ultimately strengthen the Semester School. Launching our Summer Programming in 2012 allows us to reach out to a variety of age groups. The final step on our journey to completion is to expand our campus so that we can bring our programming to many more girls, women and educators. Our expansion will also allow us to add more program enhancements, such as a Scholar-in-Residence Program.
