The gt.school experience

#
Coach Check-Ins

Every gt.school student has a personal coach, who provides guidance, mentorship and motivation. You can read more about our coaching program here. Students and coaches meet 1-2 hours per week to guide, support and motivate students in their work in both in and outside of gt.school.

#
Independent Lessons & Exercises

gt.school provides access to accelerated learning through our suite of over 60 adaptive learning apps, and our mastery-based learning approach. Students typically use apps 30 mins - 1 hour per weekday. Academic work is done independently, when it is convenient for the student, often after school, during study halls, or on weekends.

#
Connecting with Other Students

The gt.community is a place for students to inspire each other, learn from each other, and connect around academic and non-academic topics. Students connect in a Discord server, and come together for workshops and group activities with other Gifted & Talented students in the program.

#
Life Skills Workshops

gt.kids come together for engaging workshops around core life skills, such as time management, study habits, and goal setting. These are not lectures! They are engaging activities with personal exercises and action plans. Our workshops currently take place during orientation, and we'll be expanding these with more activities soon.

From the Students

More time for the things you love

gt.students overwhelmingly report that the greatest benefits of gt.school is 'getting your time back to do more of the things you love.' Through coaching around effective study habits, and time management exercises to help students see where their time is going and optimize their schedules, gt.students find they can get more academic work done in less time.

We asked some gt.students to share what they got out of the program by making a TikTok video. See what Kate has to say!

Student Testimonials

What Our Students Say

"One of the mindsets I learned is a daily practice habits. You can learn how to do every subject every day, even if that's 10 minutes. So it's easier for you to recall the information that you were just learning. This has become so useful in my life."

"I felt that my potential was being wasted in school and I wanted it to become even more advanced and hone my talents. So I decided to join gt.school and I just finished their bootcamp. And now I'm doing so much more: daily practice habits, setting ambitious goals, taking ownership and more."

Sloan

"I've learned numerous skills: how to set ambitious goals, and so much more, even though I was at first weary of the time commitment, I don't think I could be doing half of what I'm doing right now, for example, balancing five AP courses."

“It saved me so much time with the skills I learned while doing it. Even though I was first wary of the time commitment, I don't think I could be doing half of what I am doing right now without it.”

“For each of the life skills, we got to do really awesome assignments that taught us these life skills but also showed us how we can apply these lessons to our real life. That’s what I really liked about the assignments, was how personal they were, and how I felt like I wasn’t just understanding a concept but I was learning how I would be able to apply it to my life.”
