Our school was created to serve intellectually gifted children who need a more personalized and challenging educational approach than is provided within a traditional school environment in order to fully develop their potential.
At Mid-South Gifted Academy, there are no arbitrary limits to what students can learn. All of 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 for the 2019-2020 school year.
Our goal is to be a resource for families of gifted children in the mid-south. We realize that we are limited in the number of students we can directly serve through our private school option, but hope to impact many others through community outreach, homeschool assistance, enrichment programs, and help with advocacy in public schools.
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!
