||Montclair State University’s Academically Gifted and Talented Youth Program provides accelerated, inquiry based courses designed to meet the unique intellectual and social needs of high ability students. Gifted students in grades 1-11 have an opportunity to enroll in fall and spring weekend courses as well as a six week summer camp. Kindergarten students are eligible for spring semester. Students in grades 11 and 12 may enroll in college courses as part of our High Jump Program.

My son is going into second grade in the fall and is currently enrolled in the summer camp. There is a wide variety of courses to choose from (incl. academics, arts, sports, chess/games); friendly and helpful camp counselors; and plenty of challenge. Highly recommended.

This program is exceptionally good with energetic and committed teachers. The focus is on love of learning. The summer camp is also superb.

I think this is beneficial for PG students since there is little else around here for them. The 1st-3rd grade classes are mostly too easy but they do meet other gifted children. The 4-6th grade classes are much more rigorous, and 3rd graders are allowed in too. It suits us better than Gifted Child - although Gifted Child has higher entrance policies.
If you had "weekend program" instead of "Saturday program", I would have picked that. Courses offered Saturday and Sunday mornings.
