An Insatiable Appetite to Learn

You’ve noticed that your child is a voracious reader. They ask in-depth questions. They are never satisfied with simple tasks and simple answers.

They need a curriculum with the depth, pace, and complexity that will challenge them to the fullest.

Admissions Information

For Gifted and High-Achieving Students

For these kids, “tell me more” goes to their core.

They listen, see, feel. More.

More that’s faster, wider, deeper.

We make a school, you pick a school, but they bring us here.

Maximum Challenge

They invigorate, cogitate, illuminate.

Their thoughts pour, their minds soar.

It’s challenge all day, and that’s okay.

Motivated and Collaborative

Here they’re each their own. 

They’re each for each other. 

And they each understand. 

Together they’re joy. They’re drive. They’re more. 

What Is Your Dream for Your Child?

Help them see, do, be more. 

We have this moment, with these kids, when they want more. 

They’re bright. They’re eager. 

To go, and to keep going. 

Our graduates will show you.
