Our Mission: To Inspire!
The mission of The Gifted Child Society is to encourage and further the overall well-being of gifted children, through each stage of their development, and to provide them with the inspiration and means by which they will achieve their full potential.
Referred to by our students as “the gifted child’s Hogwarts”, TGCS offers a world of extraordinary learning that balances intellectual exploration with social and emotional development. TGCS designs its curricula according to the unique needs of gifted learners, for whom we are deeply committed.
TGCS students learn with like-minded peers, participating in TGCS-signature programs with which they are given the opportunity to delve into endless intellectual pursuits and activities, to discover for the first time or to master for a lifetime.
TGCS offers specialized learning opportunities for every stage of a gifted child’s development. Our students grow up with TGCS, beginning as early as three and four years of age, and continue their TGCS experiences through high school. TGCS students make lifelong friends and participate in programs together, year after year. Our teen graduates often take their first job with TGCS, as a TGCS Ambassador.
