Who we are

The Center for the Development of the Gifted and Talented (CDGT) was established in 2010 under the School of Science, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. We offer specialized and comprehensive programs for gifted learners in Hong Kong and Pearl-River Delta Region. CDGT aims at establishing long-term and diversified programs that contribute to the whole person development of the gifted learners.

Our Mission

  • Bring together gifted learners in an environment conducive to learning – intense, accelerated courses complemented with out-of-classroom activities in which learners can exchange worldviews and make friends;
  • Develop advanced curricula that challenge and inspire learners to learn, achieve and realize their full potential under the support and guidance of our university teaching faculties and staff;
  • Help gifted learners and their families understand their intellectual and affective needs and how these needs are related to their innate natural talents;
  • Provide alternative learning opportunities for exceptional gifted learners.
