A Summer Experience for College-Bound Students
The Genius Project provides support for rising high school seniors with documented learning differences, including, but not limited to autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and/or mental health diagnoses. The purpose of this four-day intensive is to introduce students to new ways of understanding their neurodivergence. Participants are guided in creating new narratives about their learning styles that are strengths-based, in order to remove the stigma that is often associated with having learning differences on college campuses. In short, The Genius Project equips students with the mindset and skills they need to thrive in college and beyond.
