G&T Admissions: Overview
Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs are one way that the NYC Department of Education supports the needs of exceptional students. G&T programs aim to deliver accelerated, rigorous, and specialized instruction aligned to Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). Students entering kindergarten through third grade are eligible to participate in G&T admissions. Children must pass an assessment to be eligible to apply to G&T programs.
There are two types of G&T programs:
District G&T programs. These are located in district elementary schools; they begin in kindergarten and end in the school’s terminal grade.
Citywide G&T programs. These admit students from all boroughs without district-based priority.
