Gifted & Talented


Welcome to Gifted & Talented Admissions 

Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs are one way the NYC Department of Education supports the needs of exceptional students. G&T programs aim to deliver accelerated, rigorous, and specialized instruction, aligned to Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS).

District G&T programs are offered within district elementary schools, beginning in kindergarten and ending in the school's terminal grade. There are also five Citywide programs that accept students from all boroughs, without preference for their district of residence. You can find more information about Gifted & Talented programs in the handbooks listed below.
