Gifted children are, by definition, not standardized.

So why do we keep trying to fit them into standard educational molds?

MAGE takes a different approach.

differentiated approach.

The Midwest Academy for Gifted Education is where gifted kids come to grow.

We spend time getting to know each child and each family, as we know it takes the right combination of teacher, parent and student to enable growth and happiness.

MAGE, a parent and teacher not-for-profit start-up, is the only private gifted school in the City of Chicago. We focus only on the gifted population/IQ of 130+ and we teach in multi-age classrooms which allows us to differentiate properly. We provide individualized and personalized instruction with the right balance of rigor, without pressure. We top off a well-rounded education with personal communications and partnership with you.

Our educators commit their creativity and passion to the strengths and interests of every child. As a part of our school, we invite you to help create a city-wide community that will support the custom needs of the gifted.
