At Rise, we believe giftedness is not something children are born with. It can be nurtured and developed.
Giftedness is the ability to succeed in the world and contribute great things to society, not just the ability to solve maths or IQ problems.
It can be described as a Venn diagram where creativity, academic ability and commitment to completing a task meet.
Our academic programs teach concepts and skills two or more years above the Australian Curriculum.
We also foster and develop gifted behaviours:
- A wonder and passion for learning
- Creativity and critical thinking
- Self-discipline to overcome challenges
- Emotional intelligence
Parents should be mindful that Rise programs aren’t for every child however. To succeed, a child must have a gifted mindset – a desire for self-improvement.
