Organizations providing information or services to families with intellectually gifted children.
These organizations offer out-of-level testing for gifted students in elementary school through high school. The tests used measure academic achievement. Qualifying students are invited to apply for a variety of enrichment and accelerated learning opportunities: summer residential, summer commuter, academic year, and distance learning (EPGY: Math and EWT: Expository Writing Tutorial).
The Univ. of Nebraska's Correspondence High School is a great place to order textbooks for home use. The math textbooks, starting with Algebra I, are excellent and inexpensive (around $50-$60)). Subtract at least 5 years from the stated grade level for science and social studies. Warning: the Expository Writing and Research Writing courses are challenging even for gifted students. Foreign Language courses are grammar based; if you want conversation and speaking, pick up a Foreign Service Institute course at a local bookseller. Textbook Catalog
