The Online Program

The Montclair State University Gifted and Talented (G&T) Program's K-12 Online Program has been designed to bring our courses and content expertise directly to your student, school or group. Whatever your needs, we can provide the online learning solution for your gifted or general ed. population. 

Online Courses

Our unique, innovative courses provide access to Subject Matter Experts (SME's) who differentiate in the teachable moment for our highly curious minds. Our online courses are designed for Grades 3 and up to provide either general education enrichment or more challenging differentiation for gifted and talented students.

Our courses span all subject areas with a focus on promoting career exploration and promoting key skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity, data analysis, and the design process. The course curricula are challenging yet purposely flexible to allow our SME’s to adjust and differentiate as needed. Our SME’s are trained to employ best practices such as immersing students in real-world challenges and efficiently guiding student-led inquiry during our online discussions.

Online courses previously offered include: 

  • Architectural Design
  • Biodiversity
  • Commodities
  • Neuroscience
  • Python Programming
  • Sustainability: Energy
  • Sustainability: Water

Fall 2017 online course:


Wednesdays, 8-9pm; October 4 to December 6 (no classes November 22)

How does the human brain function? This biomedicine course will explore the anatomical components and the physiological functions of the human nervous system with a focus on the brain. Learning modules include photos and videos of dissected mammalian brains. Successful students are those who enjoy finding patterns in data, who are observant and inquisitive, who are not afraid to actively contribute to scholarly discussions among peers, who have a strong command of written and verbal English, and who possess a sustained motivation to complete tasks on time. This course includes one hour of online discussion per week over the course of the nine-week session, so students will need Internet access to communicate via the Canvas learning management system.


Tuition for a standard, nine-hour online course is $345 per student. Offsite Partners enjoy discounts and have access to our entire menu of online courses. Please click here to learn more about our Offsite Program.
