Program   Overview

This year, Baker & Bloom will provide gifted and academically talented students special learning opportunities in the humanities and entrepreneurship.

These advanced courses encourage students to:

  • engage in intellectually stimulating discussions facilitated by academic coaches with research and teaching expertise;

  • grapple with central questions in the subjects and gain an in-depth introduction to important fields;

  • stretch and strengthen their critical thinking, imagination, oral and written communication, analytical and rhetorical skills;

  • collaborate with like-mind peers;

  • develop their intellectual and personal maturity.

Each course will culminate in a final project that allows students to explore personal areas of curiosity and to synthesize learning. While there are recommended year levels for each subject, placement will not be based solely on year level but also on ability. Students may be evaluated by Baker & Bloom to determine if a course is an appropriate fit. Scholarships will be given to qualified students with financial need.
