The benefits of gifted programs

The benefits of gifted and talented programs

Find a list of schools

If your child is gifted in one or more subjects and is having trouble engaging in school, this is a great reason to seek out a gifted program. Luckily, there are schools offering gifted programming in Toronto, Ottawa, Richmond Hill, Oakville, Mississauga, Markham, Brampton, and Burlington-HamiltonOntario. Gifted programs are also offered in Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, BC, Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, and across Canada.


Ultimately, gifted programs are meant to address students’ true abilities and passions and properly engage them in school. This can relieve many students of boredom and make school a source of wonder and pleasure again. With students deeply engaged in school, they’re less likely to develop (or sustain) social and behavioural problems (such as troubled teen behaviour). They’re also more likely to realize their academic and intellectual potential.

Below, we discuss some of the main benefits of gifted and talented programs for advanced learners. To learn more about gifted education, read our comprehensive guide.
