HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

You have until Dec. 10 to register your child for the Eagle Saturday Gifted Studies Program at the University of Southern Mississippi. 

Classes will be held each Saturday, from Jan. 21-Feb. 18 at the J.B. George Building.

Qualified students from preschool to 8th grade can participate.

Subjects like animal science, engineering and journalism will be taught.   

"What we want to provide for our students is an enrichment experience that goes beyond what they can have in a regular classroom in their regular schools," said Heather Houston, project coordinator for the Karnes Center for Gifted Studies. "We want to come alongside those schools and help push those children above and beyond what they're able to do in that environment." 

Classes run from 9 a.m. until noon each Saturday.
