- Welcome To TGCS 2015!
Another new year and welcome to the exciting, new things happening at TGCS in 2015!
- New Home For TGCS Programs
TGCS is thrilled to announce that for the first time, all TGCS programs - The Saturday Workshop Spring/Fall sessions and our Summer Super Stars Camp - will operate from a single location, Northern Highlands Regional High School (NHRHS) in Allendale, NJ. NHRHS is a sensational facility for TGCS with state-of-the-art technology and specialty classrooms, including computer labs and a planetarium, all of which will enable us to enhance and expand our programming significantly. (For those of you familiar with our previous Ho-Ho-Kus facility for Saturday Workshop, NHRHS is about five minutes north). This marks the beginning of an entirely new era for TGCS; we have many extraordinary things planned for 2015 and beyond and we look forward to seeing all our gifted learners this year!
- Saturday Workshop Spring 2015 Registration Is Now Open!
Registration is now open for the Spring 2015 program, through February 20th. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis so be sure to register early for your child(ren)'s courses. The Spring 2015 Session will run for ten weeks from March 7th through May 16th, with morning classes at 9:30AM, 10:30AM, and 11:30AM. PLEASE NOTE: There will be two days only - March 14th and April 11th - which will run classes in the afternoon at 2:30PM, 3:30PM , and 4:30PM (due to morning SAT & ACT testing at Northern Highlands).
- Special Introductory Classes For Three Year Olds
Do you have a bright three year old? Do you know someone who does? TGCS offers special, one-time introductory classes for bright three year olds who would like to experience the unique and specialized instruction offered by TGCS to advanced learners. Classes are offered as part of The Saturday Workshop program and are limited to one class choice per child. Child(ren) must be three years old prior to the start of the Saturday Workshop session. Membership is not required. Course descriptions and registration form can be found in the Saturday Workshop Spring 2015 Brochure. Registration is now open through February 20th.
- Planning For Summer?
Our Summer Super Stars Camp 2015 will run from June 29th through August 7th. Our exciting, new curriculum will be announced on our website and registration will open in late February, with an early registration bonus option. We are looking forward to having our Member campers join us for another fabulous summer!
