After-School Enrichment

Village East Gifted (VEG) offers an academically-rigorous CORE curriculum (all subjects) for gifted students ages 2-16. Its teaching methodology, The Phillips RBM Approach®, is trademarked and patented offering non-linear, highly-creative and intellectually-challenging lessons with a strong emphasis on the perfection of the written word. The teaching approach integrates many curriculum areas activating the multiple intelligences of each student. The CORE classes "teach up", not "down" to the level of the students. Participants never learn what they already know or encounter the same curriculum twice. If a student doesn't understand a word or concept used or introduced by a teacher or another student, it is his/her responsibility to ask for clarification. Every day, VEG students laugh out loud, ask questions they cannot answer, and often are heard whispering, with a smile, "This is really hard". The students' and teachers' response is always the same; "Welcome to Village East Gifted®!." Our gifted learners are continuously challenged, refreshed and forever "entertained" by our unique lessons and learning activities. Though we provide ample seating, most of our students rarely sit down. There are wheels to spin, points to be earned and unique, strategic games in which to participate. One of our alumni once said, "There is always a sense of 'academic spontaneity' in the air… yet, our feet are firmly on the ground." VEG CORE classes have "no walls" allowing program participants to quickly (in just a few classes) evolve into 'academically-satisfied' learners knowing that their questions have been answered, unique insights have been recognized and the complexity of their thought processes validated. The following subjects are covered in the CORE classes for grades K-11: writing, grammar, linguistics, Latin, social studies, SAT vocabulary, orthography, global studies, geography, math, science, public speaking, creative problem-solving, essay writing, idea sequencing, research and study skills, and American sign language. Each semester, one or more of following topics are introduced and integrated into the CORE curriculum:
