Gifted and Talented Program
Creative thinking is crucial in a continuously changing world.
The Gifted and Talented Program (GTP) at Grey Nun Academy is designed to give qualifying students meaningful and authentic learning opportunities in a gifted and talented classroom setting.
The program presents a depth of content as an extension of traditional classroom topics, and delves into independent study and research using multiple resources, including the reading of original documents when possible.
Gifted and Talented Program students explore intellectual passions and express them in varied disciplines and mediums.
Questions are open-ended to challenge learners and encourage perseverance in the face of obstacles. The goal of the Gifted and Talented Program is to stretch and stimulate divergent and evaluative thinking.
Technology is utilized to enhance learning, critical thinking skills, and the fundamentals of solid reading and writing.
Learners will see that “challenges” are not endpoints but rather where the real learning begins!
