Student Enrichment Experience (SEE) Seminars for Gifted and Advanced Students


Since 1982, the Student Enrichment Experience (SEE) program has provided innovative and thought-provoking seminars for gifted middle and high school students throughout Lancaster and Lebanon counties. Beginning in 2010, the SEE program was expanded to include elementary seminars for students in Grades 4-6.

SEE Seminars offer a wide variety of topics and experiences not readily available in the regular classroom. When aligned with student academic strengths, they can supplement a gifted student's individualized education plan. They can also build upon the gifted services provided by the home school and offer students the chance to work with intellectual peers from across Lancaster and Lebanon counties. Connecting directly with experts who offer in-depth instruction, hands-on activities, and personal insight, students benefit from the unique “beyond the classroom” environment which offers academic challenge, career exploration, and support in building valuable interpersonal skills needed for career success. When applicable, participating schools have access to an IU13 document for each seminar that, if completed by students, can be added to individual College and Career Readiness student portfolios.

Seminars are available to gifted and academically advanced students in participating school districts or nonpublic schools. Please view additional information and seminar schedules in the document section below.


School districts in Lancaster and Lebanon counties may enroll as participating districts in the SEE Program prior to the start of each school year. Nonpublic elementary, middle and high schools may also enroll in a program designed especially for them.

In the 2018-19 school year, a series of SEE Seminars for homeschool students is also available.

Please note: Lancaster and Lebanon counties are divided into two tiers (Northern Tier and Southern Tier) only for the purpose of SEE seminars. View the Tier list here.
