The American Dream explores how humans’ quest for peace, prosperity, and progress leads them towards a sometimes elusive goal. Through classroom activities and the study of rich, challenging literature, students will learn that pursuit of the “American Dream” can cause joy and despair as well as other emotional and physical reactions in humans. Using current and historic documents, literature, art, photography, and music, students will be provided with avenues to compare and contrast their own ideas about the American Dream with those of peers, communities, and society.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
