The Center for Gifted offers an innovative and unique approach to education, providing superb opportunities for young people to explore diverse subjects in a challenging, creative environment free from the pressures of tests and grades.
The Center for Gifted and Midwest Torrance Center for Creativity offers diverse and challenging programs fall, winter break, winter, spring, and summer. Programs range from Wondrous Workshops of Saturday or Sunday, Worlds of Wisdom and Wonder in the Winter, four or five Sunday afternoons each, to a summer of many exciting one, two, and three week programs, half day and all day, June, July, and beginning August. Programs reflect courses in science, math, humanities, the arts, computers, robotics, all designed to advance the thinking, creating, and producing talents and abilities of participants. Courses challenge students to think more perceptively, creatively, deeply, and expansively.
Over the summer, we provide week long day camps to gifted learners in grades 1-8, where they may choose a subject of their interest, and receive appropriate, on-level learning opportunities in a fun, stress-free environment.
