About the Saturday Workshop
Referred to by our students as “the gifted child’s Hogwarts”, TGCS offers a unique learning environment that inspires and nurtures children with giftedness.
The Saturday Workshop, one of our many flagship programs, offers two ten-week sessions in Winter/Spring and Fall for gifted children in preschool, elementary school, and middle school, with up to 50 courses per session. The Saturday Workshop strives to balance challenging intellectual exploration with social and emotional development. TGCS students learn with like-minded peers and 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 curriculum is designed by TGCS and incorporates true disciplines of STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics - for students at all levels. Our unique courses are delivered by our nurturing, TGCS-trained instructors, with optimal student-teacher ratios. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
TGCS students are taught in state-of-the-art facilities with advanced technology and specialty classrooms including labs, culinary kitchens, and even a planetarium. TGCS operates The Saturday Workshop at Northern Highlands Regional High School (NHRHS) in Allendale, New Jersey.
TGCS eligibility is required for children aged four years and older to participate in TGCS programs.
