Parents in the Memphis-area were seeking educational opportunities for their gifted children to work at their own pace, explore areas of interest, and reignite their love of learning. They wanted their children to enjoy school and be appropriately challenged, and they questioned if the traditional system was the best fit. A full-time gifted program is what their children needed, but none existed.
Our school was created to serve these families and those who have the same hopes and desires for their children.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to learn at school. Our students have personalized learning plans and are provided the opportunity to work at their own pace. In addition, we are a project-based learning environment that focuses on creating and innovating, working on collaborative and individual projects that are highly engaging for gifted learners. We have six core beliefs about children and school, but the first and most important is that every child deserves a joyful learning environment that fosters a sense of belonging, significance, and fun. We also strongly believe that children’s social and emotional well-being are of equal importance to their academic success.
We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2019 for students in grades K-8. We will add one grade each year as we grow with our oldest students all the way through high school. We are leasing temporary space from Collierville United Methodist Church and have plans to move into our permanent location in Collierville’s historic district for the 2019-2020 school year.
Our goal is to be a resource for families of gifted children in the mid-south. We are limited in the number of students we can directly serve through our private school option, but are available to consult with families regarding advocacy in public school.
If you hear of any families that could benefit from a school like ours or would just like a place to plug in for resources for their gifted child, please let them know we are here. Thank you so much for helping us to reach the families in need of this option!
