The Importance of Gifted Education

As many school districts across the country face tight budgets and funding cuts, gifted education programs are suffering reduction or elimination. As this trend continues, an increasing number of gifted children are not receiving sufficient guidance to maximize their full potential through school programs. In addition to continuous advocacy, there is now an unprecedented need for dynamic and innovative approaches for supplementing the education of our world’s most gifted, talented, and creative students. The unique, targeted, and experienced curriculum of the SIG program provides your students with the ideal educational complement, ensuring that they receive the individual attention they require.
