PTY Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Programs

Programs for Talented Youth will continue to offer virtual programs during Fall 2021 through PTY Mentor Immersion.

We will not be offering our on-campus programs, Saturday Academy at Vanderbilt for the Young (SAVY) for K-6 grade students or Weekend Academy at Vanderbilt University (WAVU) for 9-12 grade students, during Fall 2021.

We are hopeful about the possibility of offering SAVY during the Spring 2022 semester, and we are tentatively planning for this possibility.

See the section below to learn more about PTY’s upcoming virtual options and tentative on-campus possibilities.

Virtual Mentorship Experiences at PTY

PTY’s Mentorship Immersion program is a unique experience offering in-depth exposure in a field and the potential for independent research or a culminating product to be created with expert feedback from a content expert/mentor. During the academic year, the Mentor Immersion virtual program runs for approximately 5-6 months and is offered for 10th-12th grade students. Mentorship experiences are limited to approximately 8 students per mentorship. Fall 2021 mentorship experiences are currently being offered. Applications for Fall 2021 are no longer being accepted. Spring 2022 mentorship opportunities will announced October 1, 2021 with applications going live October 12, 2021.

Saturday Academy at Vanderbilt for the Young

SAVY serves gifted and high-achieving students in Kindergarten through grade 6 during the academic year (summer, rising 1-7 grade). Fall and Spring classes are held for three consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. We will not host this on-campus experience during Fall 2021. However, we are tentatively planning for SAVY to resume on campus during Spring 2022 .
