KALAMAZOO--Local youngsters may choose from several programs being offered this summer through the Academically Talented Youth Program administered by the Lee Honors College at Western Michigan University.

The programs are half-day classes that run Monday through Friday for one week and cost $100 per week. Space is limited, so students are encouraged to enroll early. The deadline to register is Wednesday, June 1.

Class offerings for 2011 are designed for students in the middle grades. Although gifted youths are targeted, any eligible-age student may enroll. This year's offerings include all four courses from last summer plus two new ones, a chess camp and a pottery-related program.
