Summit: Gifted Education Program

Hendersons' Summit Gifted Education Program is a supportive program for gifted and 2E primary aged students, that provides an environment to engage in interest-based projects tailored to their unique learning styles.

Our program fills a crucial gap in the educational journey of gifted and 2E learners, by offering a nurturing environment that celebrates uniqueness and teaches essential Executive Functioning skills for the future.

*Unlike other Hendersons programs, Summit is not designed to assist with Entrance Exam preparation or academic advancement.

What to expect from the Summit program:

  • Executive Functioning Skills: The core focus of the program. These skills are taught and practiced throughout, culminating in a project presentation from each student. Whilst we do not seek an alignment with traditional curriculum, the program aims to enhance higher order thinking and independent learning skills.

  • Tailored learning: Summit is designed to address unique and evolving needs, allow for student ownership of their project and learning style.

  • Educational Focus: We do not guarantee improvement in academic grades, rather we focus on skill development, an engaging program that strives to build a love of learning.

  • Supportive environment: We foster a community where your child's interests and talents are embraced and encouraged through a strength-based approach.

  • Classroom structure: Student are supported to work asynchronously within a class of 10 students, to engage and thrive, with the freedom to learn in a manner that encourages individuality.

Entry requirements:

To ensure the best fit for each student, we have specific eligibility criteria. A combination of the following is to be provided upon application:

  • Psychologist's report or Test results (FSIQ, GAI or equivalent)
