Helping Bright Children Grow



Kids Thinking

We feel that bright children need a place to grow intellectually, where they are not hindered in their development. As future creators and leaders, such children are a special gift to society and need to be nurtured and challenged. This program is not for everyone. Students must be above grade level in achievement to be admitted. Applicants must take and pass an entrance examination and be able to read and comprehend well above traditional grade level expectations.


Class Times



Classes run the full day, from 8:25 a.m. to 2:50 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8:25 a.m. to 1:55 p.m. on Fridays, from September to June. Teachers are trained in techniques which maximize individual attention whereby students advance at a rate matching their interests and abilities. The cost of tuition for the academic year is $10,700 per year for one student, $17,800 for two students, and $22,600 for three students. Transportation and after-care are available at extra charge. If you think your child will benefit from this program and would like to know more, please contact Dr. Arthur T. Poulos at (609) 448-8950.
