The Center for Gifted Education provides unique opportunities for high-ability students to attend enrichment programs at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the surrounding University of Louisiana at Lafayette locations. The programs enable students to explore specialized topics not typically studied in the regular classroom.  Students must qualify for admission to the Center for Gifted Education programs. Students in Pre-K through 3rd grade that do not have standardized tests, and have not been identified as a "gifted" student will need an in person screening. Older students with standardized tests scores may qualify for test score reviews.

Our screening window is Closed. Please call 337-482-6701 or email gifted@louisiana.edu with any questions.

The Center for Gifted Education will NOT present its regular academic enrichment summer programs for the 2019-2020 Academic School Year. We will post information about Spring Pop-ups and the Spring 2020 Adolescent Conference on our website and our Facebook page.

Send out the word! We are seeking Center for Gifted Education Alumni! Help us Celebrate! If you are, or know, a past participant of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Center for Gifted Education please call 337-482-6701 or email gifted@louisiana.edu to register for the Gifted Education gathering.
