Parent Education Series

Planning Ahead for Collage

for Gifted and Talented

CGCC is partnering with Midwest Academy for Gifted Education (MAGE)  to present this free parenting series. 

This event has been moved online. Registrants will be emailed Zoom details prior to the event.

What is early college, and is this an option for my child? How do I navigate the college selection process for my HG, PG, or Twice Exceptional Child? What is happening to college admissions and to going to college in the wake of Covid19? Does my child need 6 AP course per year? If my child gets all As and has high scores, are they guaranteed a scholarship at their first-choice school? Come and learn, before it sneaks up on you!

They top off a well-rounded education with personal communications and partnership with parents.
