Saturday Enrichment  Program provides a student-centered environment to explore a wide range of interests and academic areas. This program empowers students to learn about academic options, career choices, and personal interests in an active learning environment. Courses focus on S.T.E.A.M.: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics utilizing state-of-the-art campus resources while students interact with UW- Madison faculty, staff, and community professionals.



Courses are limited to 12-16 students. The students stay with their own group for the entire week with lots of personal attention from the instructors, facilitators, and staff!

We have an open enrollment policy and class assignments are on a first-come, first-served basis. Students utilize state-of-the-art campus resources and interact with UW-Madison faculty, staff, and community professionals throughout Precollege OPTIONS sponsored by the School of Education.
