Collaboration with Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University
In January 2016, we announced that Roycemore School and the Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University had embarked upon a collaborative journey. Both organizations hope to combine their expertise in education and their reach in their communities to discover new ways to help even more students to achieve their academic potential. At Roycemore, we feel our approach to teaching mirrors education developed for gifted and talented students in regular classrooms. We think every student deserves to be taught in a gifted style.
The collaboration will include having several of the Center for Talent Development’s programs at Roycemore’s convenient downtown Evanston campus:
The Leapfrog program at Center for Talent Development (CTD) provides engaging summer classes for children, age 4 through grade 3, who have a keen, early interest in learning. Each Leapfrog class challenges children to delve deeply into an exciting and timely topic, such as computer programming, zoology, playwriting, engineering, or rocket science. Half-day courses are offered morning and afternoon at all grade levels. All-day courses are available to students completing grades 1 through 3. All courses are one week long. Children may enroll in just one course or multiple courses.
The Spark program at Center for Talent Development (CTD) provides an exciting academic enrichment experience for gifted students completing grade 3 or 4. Subject areas include science, technology, English/language arts, and mathematics. During each weeklong course students explore a topic of interest in depth, develop academic skills, and collaborate with like-minded peers.
Weekend Enrichment Programs
Weekend Enrichment Programs at Center for Talent Development (CTD) offer challenging and enriching courses for academically talented students age 4 through grade 8. Our courses in mathematics, science, technology, English & Writing, and social science engage students during eight Saturdays OR eight Sundays in the fall and winter and a six-week term in the spring. Our research-driven courses, outstanding instruction and the camaraderie of learning with like-minded peers make our weekend programs the place to be!
