Our Classes

Village East Gifted holds enrichment classes after-school, evenings, over school vacations, weekends and throughout the summer. There are two semesters per academic year and a summer program offering enrichment topics and special courses. The school year sessions begin in September and end in June. The summer program runs from July through September. All age groupings (classes) run for two-three hours once a week with optional writing workshops following every class. Class-size and schedule permitting, two classes per semester can be "made up" by attending another same age grouping during the same semester.

Pre-CORE Day Program (Ages 2-3)

Village East Gifted believes that enrichment should begin as soon as gifted children can speak and listen. These classes consist of students who are pre-readers as well as those who can read small chapter books. The following curriculum is taught verbally to ages 5 and up: Global History, Geography, Reading Comprehension, Etymology, Latin, Grammar, Editing, SAT Vocabulary Enrichment, American Sign Language, Mastering the Digital Microscope, Counting Currency, Telling Time, Decoding words, Microbiology, Living Science, Earth Science, Geometry, Word Processing, Computer Graphics, Emerging Creative Writing Skills and Public Speaking.

CORE Day Program(Ages 4-5)

Academically-high aptitude children can participate in our intellectually and creatively rigorous program that is "100% Academic". Students can attend up to three half days a week; each day consisting of three hours of instruction. Through the utilization of the Phillips RBM Approach®, an accelerated gifted curriculum is presented covering all academic subjects. All new lessons are introduced at the middle school level to determine highest level of comprehension in each class. Utilizing the Phillips RBM Approach®, our young gifted learners are academically challenged and forever "entertained" by our unique ways of teaching.

CORE After School (Ages 4-15)

All new lessons are introduced at the high school level to determine the highest level of comprehension in each class. Village East Gifted utilizes its Phillips RBM Approach to introduce the follow curriculum areas: Latin, World Geography, Global History, Creative Writing, Advanced Grammar/Syntax, Essay Writing and Editing, STEAM, Cyber-Research Methodologies, Anatomy/Pre-Med Ed, Public Speaking, AP Study Skills, Business and Personal Finance, Architecture, Creative Problem-Solving, Lateral Thinking Activities and American Sign Language.

Writing Workshops (Grades K-10)

Our one-hour writing workshops are differentiated to accommodate each child's writing level and can be attended 1-5 times a week. Since many gifted students dislike writing, through VEG's innovative, "Dialectical Practices", students are subliminally taught proper grammar, syntax, spelling and organizational strategies in an interactive, highly-creative and entertaining way.
