This organization offers gifted courses that permit academically talented students to work online, at their own pace, on a challenging array of subjects, including mathematics, science, language arts, foreign languages, and social studies. Students can take charge of their learning with self-paced lessons, pre-tests, and other activities that allow them to choose topics to study in more depth.
