Referred to by our students as “the gifted child’s Hogwarts”, TGCS offers a unique learning environment with programs specially designed for gifted learners. The Saturday Workshop, one of our two flagship programs, provides challenging intellectual exploration with up to 60 courses per session, focusing on social and emotional development. The Saturday Workshop offers two ten-week sessions in Winter/Spring and Fall for gifted children in preschool, elementary school, and middle school. Classes run from 9:30AM to 12:30PM each Saturday.

TGCS curricula incorporates true disciplines of STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics - for students at all levels. Unique courses such as virtual reality, 3-D printing, fencing, coding, astronomy, equine science, applied art, imaginative literature, robotics - and many, many more! - are delivered by our nurturing, TGCS-trained instructors.
