Summer Enrichment Adventures (SEA)

SEA is a two-week summer program for high-achieving, motivated students who will enter grades 1-8 in the fall.

To enroll, students must either be identified for a gifted program or score at or above the 90th percentile on their Iowa Assessment Core Total. Students entering grades 1-3 who do not have test scores may enroll only if they enjoy fast-paced, challenging experiences. Students outside of the West Des Moines Community Schools must provide verification of inclusion in gifted programming and/or a copy of their most recent Iowa Assessments.
