The Institute for Educational Advancement offers two summer programs.
The Apprenticeship Program is a three or four week residential summer program that provides gifted high school students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in professional environments with experienced and respected mentors in art, history, medicine, industrial design, science, law and business. Placed either individually or in small groups, inquisitive and productive young people apply their talents to solve real-world problems and gain insight into a variety of career options while learning from professionals.
Yunasa is an all-inclusive summer camp, offering swimming, lake activities, arts & crafts, field sports, team building, low ropes and high ropes courses, beach parties, campfires, and much more. In addition, the camp's peaceful lakeside setting serves as the perfect backdrop for guided imagery sessions and small group workshops led by Yunasa's esteemed faculty.

NAGC invests all of its resources to train teachers, encourage parents and educate administrators and policymakers on how to develop and support gifted children and what's at stake if high-potential learners are not challenged and encouraged.

The Gifted Development Center is a testing and assessment and counseling center that has served families of the gifted since 1979. They offer comprehensive assessment, counseling, tutoring, and telephone consultations for advanced learners. We specialize in visual-spatial learners (individuals who think in images), twice-exceptional learners (gifted and learning-disabled), the highly gifted (who score above the 99th percentile), and gifted adults. Their main purpose is to assist individuals in recognizing and developing their strengths, overcoming their weaknesses, becoming joyful learners, and actualizing their potential.
