The elementary, middle and high school Enrichment Seminar Program offers students a variety of opportunities to pursue their interests in the arts, humanities, and physical activities over the course of four Saturday morning seminars.  (The S.A.T. Prep course is six Saturdays.)  Each seminar begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends promptly at 11:30.  Students should not arrive before 8:45 AM.  Individuals who are not enrolled in the Enrichment Seminar Program, i.e. friends or relatives, are NOT permitted to attend.

The seminars take place at the State Campus, College at Oneonta.  All elementary students report to IRC (Hodgden Instructional Resource Center) to meet with the Program Coordinator and the instructors at the beginning of each seminar, and are then escorted to their classrooms. This is an opportunity to build early career and college awareness!

The S.A.T. Preparation Course helps prepare students to take the S.A.T. College Entrance Examination.  The course will assist students in pinpointing their strengths and weaknesses.  The course also provides strategies to use and practice to improve S.A.T. examination scores.   Two instructors team-teach the  class, alternating between the math and the language arts sections of the exam. 
We offer instructors in the classroom, as opposed to online classes that provide little or no opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback.  Students will receive corrections and feedback on written assignments. They also receive a  textbook and CD-ROM in order to do additional independent studying between class sessions, and to  continue preparation for the exam after the course has ended.

Each week, small teams of students will explore contemporary and classical physics, biology, and earth science concepts through hands-on investigations with the SUNY ONeonta Noyce Scholars. Challenging mathematics and analysis of data with computers will be incorporated into the lessons. All sessions will include discussion of career pathways within the topics studied. The program will be taught by teams of college students who are training to become middle and high school mathematics and science teachers.
