GATE Parent Association

The GATE Parent Association is a volunteer group committed to supporting the GATE Program within the Calgary Board of Education.

Our members have children who are currently enrolled in the GATE Program, which is a Special Education program designed to meet the unique, and often complex needs of learners who are academically gifted.

What is Gifted and Talented Education?

Specific learning needs and outcomes are monitored so that the students can achieve their potential.

What does it mean to be 'gifted'?

Children who are gifted often have exceptional learning needs at school, in the community, and at home.

Where can I find support?

We are always eager to hear from and connect with our gifted community.
