The Parent Association for Gifted Education, Inc. (PAGE) concluded its 2017-2018 fiscal year on June 30, 2018. The program continued to excel in serving the Greater Cincinnati gifted community.
2017-2018 was a strong year for The Super Saturday Program. We had 885 total registrations, including 70 (8%) supported by financial aid. The program continued to operate classes at the Walnut Hills High School campus and offered nearly 100 classes over the fall, winter and spring sessions. We continued to emphasize our service to the families of the gifted as well as offering new speakers in the parent room and developing our online presence. The upcoming 2018-2019 fiscal year will mark 38 years of serving Greater Cincinnati’s intellectually gifted students and their parents.
Our program is entirely run by a dedicated group of parent volunteers who manage all aspects of the program.
