Enrichment and Talent Development

Enrichment courses at Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development (CTD) give gifted and advanced students opportunities to focus on specific areas of study within a community of peers, guided by an expert instructor. CTD's online classes are designed to emphasize higher order thinking, facilitate creative thinking, and provide earlier exposure to advanced concepts in developmentally appropriate ways. They're great for home school curriculum or as a supplement to school activities.

Online enrichment courses, which are available asynchronously, complement school-based curriculum by extending student learning to real world problems. CTD's virtual learning is fun and designed for kids, but most importantly, students develop their scholar identity, learn to take intellectual risks, engage in more advanced content as they progress in school, and continue to deepen their love for learning.

The teacher is enthusiastic and the course material is great. I am enjoying the course and would recommend it to others. - CTD Student
