Gifted Kids

A Long List of Distinct Advantages

Private schools allow gifted students to realize their potential in an environment that can meet their unique needs. If the gifted student in your family feels bored or under-stimulated in his or her current school environment, numerous private schools can provide more challenging curriculum, a more flexible environment and more attentive, better trained educators.

Gifted kids schools typically offer more intensive curricula and heavier workloads than other schools. This advanced education will give your son or daughter a needed edge in post-secondary education. Many universities and colleges look favourably on students who were in a gifted student program. The academic rigour of these schools also prepares students for university, where your child will be a step ahead of others.

Specialized programs offered at some private and boarding schools include the following:

  • Advanced Placement (AP): AP courses are more difficult than other high school classes and at the end of an AP course, students write a standardized exam. If they score a four or five (out of five), they receive a university course credit.
  • International Baccalaureate (IB): IB is a wide-ranging program that is more challenging than regular high school curricula. The program challenges students to enroll in six subject areas and complete more community service than they would elsewhere. IB high schools and the IB elementary program aim to develop a global citizen and whole person, instead of just a student. This program is available from elementary school until the end of high school.

Miriam is one graduate of a gifted kids school. She tells us: "I was very well-prepared for university and what lay beyond the hallowed halls of my high school. I will always be thankful to my teachers — and to my parents for sending me there."

Many parents have also found that sending their child to a gifted school makes social interaction easier. In an environment with other advanced students, your gifted child will thrive academicallly and socially.

Financial Aid for Gifted Children

There are countless scholarships and bursaries for gifted children. Both schools themselves and external organizations (i.e. charitable, corporations) help parents pay for these private schools. Schools also may also assist you through such means as sibling discounts and flexible payment plans.

Listed below are Private Schools offering programs for gifted children.
