Welcome to The Grayson School
The Grayson School is Pennsylvania’s first and only private school designed specifically to meet the needs of gifted learners. For the 2015-16 school year, we offer grades K-6. In spring of 2016, we will submit our license application for 7th & 8th grades to the Pennsylvania Department of Education for approval, with plans to have students in grades K-8 beginning in September 2016. Grayson plans to grow to be a PreK to 12th-grade school.
At Grayson, we are passionate about helping gifted students find a place where they can be challenged and have a chance to grow—opportunities they may not have elsewhere. While we know that not all gifted children are the same, we also understand that gifted students need different things from school: they need to be able to progress at their own pace and at their own level; they need to be able to interact with true peers in a real classroom setting; and they also need to be supported emotionally, as well.
Our goal at Grayson is to provide an individual learning experience for every child, tailored to their advanced educational needs. We are excited about the potential and possibilities each child holds, and want to do everything we can to help them grow and learn.
We are excited that you would like to learn more about us, and urge you to contact us for more information. Check out our calendar for our next open house.
We look forward to your child joining us on the journey!
The Enrichment Center at The Grayson School
The Enrichment Center at The Grayson School (EC@TGS) provides gifted students with the chance to engage in high-level programming with their intellectual peers outside of school. Courses are open to all gifted students, not just students enrolled at The Grayson School, and are designed as a short series of weekend sessions focusing on interesting topics that give students a chance to think critically, ask and answer difficult questions, solve problems, and stretch their brains. The Enrichment Center courses are not meant to supersede The Grayson School’s curriculum or any other academic program, but rather to provide students with the chance to have fun and explore topics of interest that might not otherwise be covered in their typical school day. With the Enrichment Center, we hope to match students with other children who are intellectual peers in the areas of their strengths and interests. We are committed to creating a diverse student population that offers students the chance to learn from each other as well as from our faculty.
