What is AIL?

Adventures in Learning is not just another summer program. AIL combines stimulating academic and social opportunities in a fun-filled 10-day experience that exposes participants to exciting and sophisticated areas of interest not usually found during the regular school year. AIL is designed for gifted, talented, and high-ability learners who are entering grades 6 and 7 in Fall of 2021 and are interested in fast-paced, challenging opportunities.

Adventures in Learning -- sponsored by OSU Precollege Programs along with corporate and private donations -- was developed and is guided by an advisory board of OSU personnel, public school administrators, and area TAG specialists. The program is nonresidential, although meal options are available.

  Meeting Information

AIL meets Mondays through Fridays, July 12 to 23 either on OSU Campus for In person, or online for virtual classes. 

Boxed lunches will be available for $10.95. They include a sandwich or wrap, two composed salads, a dessert, and a beverage.

The AIL Program

AIL offers courses specifically designed to meet the particular learning needs of youth who are capable of high academic performance. Program participants in the half-day option attend two classes of their choice and students who select the full-day option attend four courses of their choice. Classes are 80 minutes long (their are limited classes which last for 160 minutes).  More than 20 courses, covering a wide range of topics, are proposed each year.

AIL's wide variety of offerings enables students to expand current interests and investigate new ones. Program participants can anticipate: academic stimulation in the company of other capable students, developing new friendships, an exciting learning environment, and access to OSU facilities.
