Participant at Peaks & Potentials 2021

Peaks and Potentials allows high-potential students to come to the MSU campus and explore special topics of interest while working with experts in various subject areas.

Instructors are MSU faculty members, students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as directors and counselors throughout the week.

All workshops emphasize personal instruction, small group interaction and a "hands-on" experiential approach. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.

Before You Register

To save time when registering, we recommend that you:

  1. Create accounts for yourself and the children you plan to enroll.
  2. Rank the workshops your child would like to take in each timeslot.

Creating Accounts

You will need online accounts for both you and each child you plan to enroll. 

Ranking Workshops

When you register, you will rank each workshop in each timeslot. There are 3 timeslots (morning, mid-morning and afternoon) with 5-6 workshops per timeslot.

Before you register, we recommend that you review the workshop schedule and rank the workshops that your child would like to take.

Each timeslot must have all workshops ranked 1-6, with 1 being the first choice, 2 being the second choice, etc. We will place your child in their highest-ranked workshop choice when we receive your registration. We will process all registrations in order according to the day and time they are received. Therefore, the earlier you register your child, the better their chance of receiving their higher-ranked workshops.

We do not guarantee that we can place your children in the same workshop as their friends. Based on workshop availability and registration day/time, we will accommodate the best we can. There will be opportunities at lunch, afternoon free time and evening activities to see each other.
