CGTY Serves Middle School Homeschool Students - Recognizing all students' gifts and talentsLEARN MORE REGISTER NOW
Although IQ is often the most distinguished characteristic in students , CGTY believes that developing each student’s EQ (Emotional Quotient) is equally important. Teachers encourage the students in healthy interpersonal relationships and character building that may not come “naturally” to the typical gifted student. Conflict resolution, integrity, empathy, citizenship and understanding different personality types are examples of topics that CGTY teachers weave into their lessons; focusing on the overall development of the student to assure their success in future business and personal relationships.
Classes will begin September 9th, 2015 and end May 25, 2016 consisting of four 8-week semesters. Between each semester is a "Catch-Up Week" for students to finish incomplete assignments or enjoy a reprieve. Classes meet on Mondays and Wednesdays in Delray Beach. CGTY offers a variety of classes which can be taken independently or together without scheduling conflicts. See Schedule
This year CGTY is excited to introduce the Community Problem Solvers program- a branch of the Future Problem Solving Program International. Our students will learn how to make a positive impact in our community while implementing creative and critical thinking strategies. CGTY students will identify and strategize to solve a problem they chose in our community. We will also be participating in a community garden in our area. Students that reach out beyond themselves understand the importance of developing their gifts and talents to help others.
Recognizing the relationship between student engagement and academic success, CGTY has created an exciting, interactive curriculum for students; grades 6-8. The center offers a variety of classes including Physical Science, Language Arts, Community Problem Solvers, World History and Conversational Spanish. CGTY begins each day with announcements and focus on a character trait maintaining the importance of the "wholistic" development of the student body for life and academics. In order to focus on the individual gifts and talents of each student, CGTY limits each class to a maximum of 12 students.
CGTY believes that homeschooling requires community. By stressing the interpersonal relationships within the classrooms, students are taught to value and respect each other. Community is built in the class as teamwork, projects and character development is emphasized. Outside of the class, CGTY arranges field trips and family nights; gathering for class presentations or just an evening of fun! The community garden project will welcome siblings and parents to join the CGTY students throughout the school year. Enrichment classes such as music, art, theater are also in the works!
