The Enrichment Center believes that all children should be challenged and not stifled. Many students are not eligible for the gifted program in their school, if one even exists for their age. A decrease in school funding has forced many districts to limit or eliminate this needed program.

The Enrichment Center's gifted program fills this void. Our program stimulates the interest of the child; it does not attempt to push a child so far ahead in school that it creates more problems in the classroom. We call this lateral enrichment. We introduce new ideas based on the student's knowledge and ability.

The gifted program runs for children in kindergarten through grade eight. All materials used are above grade level, encouraging students to think critically and achieve a higher level of learning. When children are excited, challenged and motivated, they soar. Elementary and middle school years are a time of exploration for children. We need to understand that their minds are like sponges, able and willing to absorb whatever comes their way. Knowing your child can guide you into specific areas of interest.

Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY)

CTY conducts the nation's oldest and most extensive academic talent search and offers educational programming for students with exceptionally high academic ability.

For more than 20 years, the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) at Johns Hopkins University has identified America’s top academic students in grades two through eight and provided challenging educational programs through their 10th grade year. Students who score at or above the 97th percentile on standardized tests normally taken in school are invited to participate in CTY’s Talent Search, during which they take an additional set of standardized tests used to measure mathematical and verbal reasoning. Qualifying students may choose to enroll in CTY programs including summer residential programs, online courses, and one-day conferences on special topics. CTY also publishes Imagine, a five-issue-per-year periodical that is full of opportunities and resources for gifted students.
