My daughter just graduated from college this June. She was an ATDP student for many years and has said that her 6 week summers at ATDP had a greater impact on her life than her 12 years of education prior to college. ATDP is a wonderful experience that inspires true community and joy in learning.

We tried the summer program for our child leaving kindergarten last summer. It was a wonderful, in-depth experience, the best we've had since leaving a gifted school in the mid west.
