Fall and Spring Programs

The Gifted and Talented Youth Program at Montclair State University provides accelerated, inquiry based courses designed to meet the unique intellectual and social needs of high ability students in grades K-8. Courses are taught for 9 weekends in the fall and winter/spring. The program provides students with opportunities to explore topics in the humanities, mathematics, arts, sciences and technology. Courses stimulate creativity, higher order thinking skills, and problem solving and include a diverse array of topics.  Because of the small class size and low teacher-student ratio,  students are provided with customized programs.  Students delve into topics of personal interest while engaging with other students who have similar abilities and passions. The instructors have diverse backgrounds and include university professors, teachers of the gifted, published authors, and professionals with real-world experience in the topics they present.
