Village East Gifted (VEG) offers an academically-rigorous CORE curriculum, covering all subjects, to gifted students ages 2-15. Its trademarked teaching methodology, the Phillips RBM Approach , is non-linear, highly-creative and intellectually-challenging with a strong emphasis on the perfection of the written word.
The Village East Gifted curriculum is trademarked and patented containing continuously-modified lessons in all academic subjects which are NEVER repeated. If a student has already learned any part of the curriculum presented in the class, the teachers immediately present another VEG curriculum. Students who have been in the program for ten years have never encountered the same lesson twice.
Classes are formed based on each participant's grade level, academic performance and social/emotional development. Students can register for one semester at a time or for the whole school year. Though there is a maximum of 15 students per class, the average class size is 9-12 students. It is recommended that all participants remain in the program for at least two academic years. Most participants remain in the program for 3-5 years. Students can sign up for 1-2 CORE or Pre-CORE classes per week. Writing workshops are open to all students as often as they wish.
