Curriculum and Student Programming

Bring CTD’s curriculum, programming for gifted students, and professional development to your classroom.

Online Courses

Offer a CTD online course as enrichment to complement core curriculum or an advanced standards-aligned, honors, or AP course where school resources may not be available for instruction. Courses are available for small groups of students, or entire cohorts. Learn more.

In-Person Student Programs

Schools can host CTD’s Accelerated Weekend Experience, which offers unique courses in science, design and engineering, and computer science. Students learn from content experts and practicing professionals. Learn more.

Custom-designed service-learning and leadership programs allow students to engage in hands-on service with communities, learn about important social problems and inspiring solutions, and bring their leadership skills to the next level. Learn more.

Curriculum Development

CTD’s Civic Education Project provides curriculum development support to educators in the areas of service-learning, civics, and social justice education to align with local standards, including Illinois’ civics mandates at the middle and high school levels. Learn more.

CTD Enrichment Units are built around high-interest topics in STEM and English & Language Arts and provide depth and breadth to core curriculum for students grades K-5. Each unit provides 22-24 hours of enrichment curriculum and can be used for an entire class, small group enrichment, or after school programming. Learn more.

"It's not a place where kids are sitting, just sort of listening to an adult talk at them. They're really actually putting forth ideas, making connections, identifying problems, creating solutions themselves."
