A.J. Chapman and Kiernan Bartlett, both fifth graders at Mary Ellen Henderson, have been accepted into the University of Virginia’s Summer Enrichment Program, a 12-day residential program for gifted and high-ability students.

The program, now in its 31st year, offers students enrolled in grades 4-10 an opportunity to live on the UVA campus and attend courses designed to foster critical and creative thinking. The program is run by the Curry School of Education at UVA.

The highly competitive program required the students to submit writing prompts, as well as an essay debating the virtues (or non-virtues) of homework.

The application process also required a letter of recommendation from their teacher as well as transcripts from recent test scores.
