The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) office is dedicated to promoting differentiated educational programs for students in middle school and high school. The mission of the Gifted and Talented Education office is to provide educational experiences that allow gifted students to develop intellectually, to cultivate social relationships, and to expand their understanding of their world.

Academic Year Programs for grades 7-9 include: CHAMP-Math, ISHALL-English, and LEAF-French. These courses are designed to replace 4 years of high school curriculum in the subject, and the courses are completed at an accelerated rate – each program is 2 years long and covers 4 years of curriculum in that time. Students earn high school credit for completing Academic Year Programs.

Summer programs for grades 7-9 include:

MST - Math, Science, and Technology program

CSI – Crime Scene Investigation Forensic Science program

DOCS - Future Doctors program

GATE Summer Programs are designed for students to explore new topics and areas of interest that are not typically covered in standard middle school curricula. Students learn with their peers through fun, hands-on activities, and they are challenged to learn new information beyond their current realm of knowledge.

Additionally, Dual Enrollment in MSU college courses is available for students in grades 9-12. Students can enroll in Fall, Spring, or Summer semester, and they will get a head start on their college transcripts.
