The Calasanctius Experiment

by Stephen Gerencser - 1979

My experience as a teacher for many years in different countries, and most especially my experience as a clinical psychologist, led to the idea of the Calasanctius School as an experiment in the education of gifted and talented children. After many consultations with educators, psychologists, and members of the academic and business community, the decision was made to formulate a special program for intellectually talented and gifted children from grade five to college level. The suggestion was for a separate school with a comprehensive program, where the only criteria for acceptance were ability and interest. It was envisioned that the curriculum would not be a copy of any other design. Nor would it employ the so-called enrichment or acceleration methods, but rather it would have a unified program built around the psychological and sociological needs of gifted children.
