The Roeper Approach

Individualizing a lesson, a class, an entire curriculum isn’t easy. But it’s what we do.
 
Our visionary founders discovered in the 1940s the power of a student-centric, collaborative education. Creativity, choice, independence, and free thinking guide an organic exuberance in our curriculum that is thoughtfully and deliberately connected to academic and life goals.
 
Our approach offers the intellectual challenge gifted children crave and allows them to explore personal passions deeply and imaginatively.
 
Each path is different—and that’s what we love.

Intellectual joy and motivation can only thrive when we respect and nurture the emotional complexity of our gifted children.

Whether teaching in person or via distance learning, our teachers connect deeply with their students and are masters at addressing the multiple—and often very different—levels of development within each child.
