GPGC 2018 | JUNE 3 – JULY 21

Developing the Whole Child

Assembling a large group of gifted young people to live in close quarters for nearly two months creates an amazing sense of bonding among the students, many of whom have been starving for companionship with kindred spirits. GPGC provides an environment in which “smart” is not an isolating label, and children are free to explore the other aspects of the personalities which identify them as unique and fascinating individuals.

GPGC offers far more than acceptance. Founded by a Clinical Psychologist, GPGC features a student life that is carefully designed to foster students’ entire social, emotional, and moral development. The social skills learned at GPGC often help students to better relate to their classmates upon returning to their regular schools in the Fall.
