CENTER FOR GIFTED YOUTH

 
General Information
Description of ProgramCommitted to the development of the intellectual potential of gifted children. It brings together two important elements of education for the gifted: extraordinary teachers recruited from leading high schools, middle schools and elementary schools in the metropolitan area and university-level facilities. These two factors, combined with an administrative and psychological team schooled in the needs of gifted children, give the Long Island University program unique strengths in producing positive benefits for young people admitted to the program. The Center for Gifted Youth's underlying philosophy should be understood by all considering its program for their children. The Center is committed to the development of the intellectual potential of each child. Its purpose is to provide learning experiences for children with superior intellectual ability that will deepen and extend their intellectual interests, as well as develop the skills of independent learning. Classes are taught at a faster pace and in greater depth than in most schools. The program is designed to augment programs in local schools. Call for information regarding admission procedures. An application is required.
