|This program is excellent. It gives the gifted student a place to be themselves. It is the outlet that is so desperately lacking in today's society, the ability for younger students to study and learn at the adult level. It's only flaw (like any other school program) is that it is underfunded and understaffed. Our son entered the program at age 12 and never looked back. Like any parent, we were apprehensive and unsure whether it was the right place for him, but time and our son proved to us that it was the right choice. Not only did he gain his bachelor's degree at age 18, but he also gained additional confidence and respect for himself, lasting friendships, the ability to grow and develop at his own pace and the ability to feel proud of his intelligence and accomplishments. As a parent, you definitely have to trust in your student's abilities and that they have the ability to handle a lot more independence at a much earlier age than most, which is no easy feat, I know. This program was a huge impact in our son's life for the better. No regrets whatsover.|
