Parent Seminars

The Center offers many seminars for parents prior to and during our programs for students. We believe education is strongest when parents, educators, and students work as a team. In keeping with this philosophy, we invite parents of students participating in our Super Saturdays program to attend seminars on gifted children and their educational needs.
