Village East Gifted (VEG), celebrating its "10th Year of Academic Excellence" offers academically rigorous enrichment programs for gifted students in grades N-11. Its teaching methodology (Phillips RBM Approach®) is non-linear, highly creative and intellectually-challenging with a strong emphasis on the perfection of the written word.
Village East Gifted believes that the abilities of a gifted child should never be underestimated. Accordingly, the VEG CORE curriculum is offered at the high school level to all age groupings (N-11). Instruction begins at the highest level of comprehension in each class. The VEG CORE curriculum covers the following subject areas: writing and grammar, linguistics, Latin, social studies, SAT vocabulary, orthography, global studies, geography, public speaking, science, mathematics, business, creative problem-solving,research and study skills, and American sign language. The WRITING workshops offer individualized instruction in essay writing, data research and collection, fine editing, outlines, journalism,creative writing and research reports.
Village East Gifted has two locations:
1. VEG of Huntington: 33 Walt Whitman Rd., Suite 111,
Huntington Station, NY 11746
2. VEG of Roslyn: 216 Mineola Ave., Second Floor,

Classes are formed based on each participant's grade level, academic performance and social/emotional development. Students can register for one semester at a time or for the whole school year. It is recommended that all participants remain in the program for at least one academic year. Most participants remain in the program for 4-5 years. VEG accepts students ages 2- 17.
