Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs offer accelerated instruction to eligible elementary school students in New York City.

There are two types of G&T programs:

  • K-to-5 G&T programs
    • These existing programs serve children throughout elementary school, from kindergarten through grade 5.
    • Children can enter these programs in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3.
  • Top Performer ("Grade 3") G&T programs
    • These 32 programs––one in each NYC community school district––serve children from grade 3 to grade 5.
    • Children enter these invitation-only programs in grade 3. Top-performing grade 2 students (whose grades are in the top 10% at their school) are invited to apply. 

You can get more information about how and when to participate, as well as how G&T offers are made.
