The Center for Gifted Education

Drury University > The Center for Gifted Education

Since 1981, the center has provided programs for gifted children, their families and educators. Each summer, more than 700 children from pre-kindergarten through high school attend Drury’s residential and nonresidential pre-college programs: Summer Pals, Summer Quest, Summerscape and Drury Leadership Academy. Drury also hosts Fallscape and Winterscape, yearly day-long enrichment programs for gifted and high ability students.
