Summer Enrichment Adventures Overview

  • Summer Enrichment Adventures (SEA) is a two-week summer program for high-achieving, motivated students entering grades 1-8 in the fall.

    To enroll, students must be identified for a gifted/talented program OR score advanced in one or more categories of the ISASP (or equivalent) test. Students entering grades 1-3 who do not have test scores may enroll only if they enjoy fast-paced, challenging experiences. Students outside West Des Moines Community Schools are asked to submit evidence of gifted/talented program inclusion OR a copy of their most recent state assessment, CogAT, or above-level test.
