This document consists of the first year's output (5 issues) of a newsletter describing opportunities and resources for youth who are academically gifted, in an effort to achieve a match between their interests and abilities and their educational programming. The theme of the first issue is "Entering Academic Competitions." It describes selected competitions from a variety of academic areas. The second issue, "Planning Ahead for College," discusses what college admissions officers are looking for, describes four types of undergraduate environments, and outlines financial aid procedures. The third issue, "Choosing Academic Summer Programs," offers a student's perspective and provides a directory of summer opportunities. The fourth issue, "Getting the Best Precollege Education," discusses choosing a high school, considering early college entrance, advanced placement programs, and ability grouping. The final issue, "Exploring Career Options," discusses multipotentiality, career indecision, and mentorships and lists sources of career information. A regular feature of each issue is a student's review of a university. Universities reviewed include Stanford University (California), Washington University (Missouri), Johns Hopkins University (Maryland), Yale University (Connecticut), and Brown University (Rhode Island). Other regular features include stories, poems, book reviews, and puzzles created by talented youth. (JDD)
