Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)




Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) is an enrichment program that offers classes in the arts, science and technology to students 2nd through 8th grades who have potential in the visual or performing arts, science, and technology or those students who have demonstrated outstanding academic ability in a particular subject area.

GATE is offered in the spring and fall and is a partnership with the Ingham Intermediate School District, the Clinton County Regional Educational Service Agency, the Eaton Intermediate School District, and the Shiawassee Regional Educational Service District.

ATTENTION FALL GATE 2015 will resume October 24 - November 19. Be sure to check back for Fall 2015 class listings.

Tuition for GATE classes varies. Refer to our Fall 2014 GATE brochure for course descriptions to determine the cost of individual classes.
