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, virtual and home schools -- Preschool through University -- within the district boundaries of MN ISD 834 in Washington County.

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

We invite you to explore, learn more about MCGT, attend a meeting, and connect with St Croix Valley neighbors who support the young gifted learners in our midst, including their parents, educators, and caregivers.

Parent and Educator Resources
Gifted 101 is a great starting point. Our resources page updated monthly, with archives sorted by topic. You'll find articles, links to GT enrichment programming, info about identification, instruction, debunking stereotypes, and more.
