Minnesota Council for the Gifted & Talented

Connections. Advocacy. Resources. Equity. Support.

Community Hub

MCGT strives to create an inclusive community of those interested in supporting gifted & talented learners.

“The support and information I received through MCGT was essential in helping me to navigate the waters of raising my highly gifted children. Connecting with other parents, attending the conferences and seminars gave me the tools I needed to parent my children while also maximizing their educational experiences in a K-12 system that wasn’t always a good fit. Thank you MCGT!”

-Parent of Gifted Children
