Welcome to St Croix Valley Gifted

We are the local chapter of Minnesota Council for the Gifted and Talented (MCGT) serving all public, private, charter, and home schools -- from preschool through university -- within the geography of Washington County defined by Minnesota ISD 834. www.stcroixvalleygifted.net

Every student deserves to learn every day.
All students 
deserve the opportunity to experience learning growth
over the course of the school year.

We invite you to explore, learn more about MCGT, attend an upcoming meeting, and connect with residents of the St Croix Valley who value support for the young gifted learners in our midst, including their parents, educators, and caregivers who live and work with them.

Parent and Educator Resources
Each month St Croix Valley Gifted adds to our online resources page and archives previous links by topic. You'll find articles, links to Minnesota GT enrichment options, info about GT identification and more. We invite you to explore and contact us with suggestions.
