I really enjoyed coming up with favorite words. I liked it because I could search my vocabulary for words I liked. I now keep a notebook page with all my favorite words.

Students qualify for Summer Challenge classes by scoring in the 95th percentile or higher on a recent nationally normed standardized aptitude or achievement test. Participation in a nationally recognized talent search (such as the Johns Hopkins Talent Search) or placement in a recognized gifted school program will also serve to qualify a student for our program.
