Student Qualifications



Pre-CORE Day Classes (Ages 2-3)

An interview with the director of admissions is scheduled at Village East Gifted to observe and discuss the student's attributes that may indicate giftedness. If appropriate, the student is invited to attend a trial class. Based on the teacher's observations and director's recommendations, the student is either accepted into the program or asked to return at a later date. Due to the continuity and consistency of instruction as well as the separation issues of the other toddlers, parents are not permitted to "sit in" the classroom or be in the teaching areas of the facility. There is a cafe in the building as well as other locations nearby to visit while the child is attending the class.

If the director of admissions accepts the student into the program, the parents may register their child for classes at any time during a semester with the exception of the last four weeks of classes. Trial classes are not offered for students in grades N-10.
