Private schools are not obligated to support gifted children with special programs. Many private schools don't—even ones with strong academic reputations. The schools listed on this page, however, do. We organize the schools into groups: dedicated gifted schools, schools with dedicated gifted classes, and schools offering in-class gifted support. Then, in the fourth group, we identify schools that don't offer formal gifted support but have accelerated curricula for all their students.


These schools have a separate, dedicated class (or classes) where 100% of the students are gifted. These gifted classes can be either full-time or part-time, and exist in parallel to regular, non-gifted classes.

These schools offer no formal program for gifted students, but have an accelerated baseline curriculum. This means all students—gifted or not—do the work of older peers at other schools. For highly gifted learners (those in the 99th percentile), this alone is likely not enough to support their needs.

Our gifted education guide has advice specific to finding gifted schools and programs. For more general advice (on how to evaluate school options), we recommend you check out our guide to choosing a school and our expert advice on choosing a school. You can also read our guides to questions to ask private schools and questions students get asked at school interviews.

Private school expos

Private school expos can be a great way to find the right school for your child. We have annual private school expos in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, and Halton-peel. These expos allow you to speak with many private schools, some of which have gifted programs—all in the same place. Find a gifted school near you.

Parent discussion forum

Word-of-mouth can also help you find the right school. The Our Kids parent discussion forum allows you to discuss gifted education, gifted schools, and other related topics. Join our large community of parents, educational experts, and school officials, to discuss educational options for your child.

Upcoming open house events

Open houses are another effective way to learn more about a school. For some general advice on open house visits, go here. If you have specific questions about gifted schools and programs, read our main gifted education guide.

    The cost of gifted schools in BC tends to reflect private school tuition in general. Private schools usually range from $5,000 to $30,000 per year.

    There are a number of affordable private and independent schools for gifted children. Inexpensive schools can often provide a great education by focusing on the classroom basics. You don't need to spend a fortune on an education for your gifted child: the key is getting them specialized support.

    That said, more costly schools often provide a wider range of in-class and extracurricular resources. They also tend to be larger and more established. Yet, for most schools, the largest expense is teacher salaries.

    Many schools offer financial aid (also known as "bursaries", "tuition relief," or "tuition assistance") and scholarships. Financial aid is needs-based, while scholarships are given for merit (whether it be academic, athletic, or something else). Read our guide to financial aid and scholarships. We also discuss preschool costs and funding in particular.

    Often, the larger and more expensive private schools provide the most aid. Even some middle-class families receive aid from private schools. So be sure to ask a school about it—no matter your financial situation.

    Below, you'll find the range of costs at British Columbia private schools with gifted programs:

  • There's no question about it: gifted children have different needs than most students. Gifted learners often have such advanced abilities that they stand out  in the classroom. This means a standard approach won't work. When these students don't receive the specialized programming they need, they won't feel challenged.

    This often leads to boredom. It can also sometimes lead to behavioural and social issues.

    If you have a gifted child, you'll be faced with several questions:

    You can also consider alternative options. For instance, some gifted children enter language immersion programsInternational Baccalaureate programs, special needs schoolsadvanced placement courses (if they're older), or Montessori schools (if they're younger).

    To learn about these options and more, in far more detail, read our introductory guide to gifted education. After doing so, you can come back to this page to explore your specific school options in BC.

    Private school policies

    Private schools are not required by law to provide support for gifted children—and many don't. On the other hand, some private schools offer highly tailored programs for gifted learners. In the end, though, it's up to you to ensure a school is the right fit for your gifted child. The list of private schools on this page (above) is a good place to start your search.
