Gifted and talented primary students have unique learning needs. While gifted and talented students may be ready for higher level material at a younger age, they’re still kids at heart. They still need engaging hands-on activities that make learning fun.
At HEROES Academy, we’ve developed a curriculum and program specifically to meet these needs. We’ve designed games, puzzles, crafts, and other hands-on activities to teach higher level topics to younger students. Our classes also move at an accelerated pace, allowing students to move through 1.5 to 2 years of material in just 36-class sessions.
Our classes for primary grades cover math, reading, and writing in a two-hour per week class. Students receive about 15 minutes per day of engaging homework such as games for the whole family, puzzles, colorful worksheets, and more.

Students ages 6 and up should apply now. Because HEROES works exclusively with gifted and talented students, and we place students into classes based on tested math, reading, and writing skills, all students must complete an Academic Evaluation for admissions and class placement purposes. We’ll assess their math, reading, and writing skills to determine if HEROES is a good fit for your child and, if so, which level class is suitable.
