SMU's Gifted Studies Institute conducts two programs for able boys and girls. Students entering grades 8-10 may enroll in the Talented and Gifted (TAG) program, which allows them to take two classes: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Particularly strong pupils may earn college credit for the morning course. Rising high school juniors and seniors take two college-level courses in the College Experience program. Each participant selects a morning course from the regular summer school credit offerings, then engages in an in-depth, interdisciplinary afternoon seminar.
