Gifted Education Re-imagined!

Join us this summer for the Advancing Academics Conference. We’re spending two days celebrating and exploring STEM, Project Based Learning, Gifted and Talented, and Advanced Academic Students.

We’ll have sessions on incorporating depth and complexity, extending lessons and activities in the classroom, updates on the AP structure, STEM activities for early childhood, and plenty of other strategies, resources, tips, and tricks. Attendees will receive 6 hours of credit for each day of the conference they attend.
