Talent Development is an important part in our curriculum framework because we place and equal emphasis on STEM innovation and Linguistic Potential, in addition to cultivating students’ Academic Talent.
The benefit of this approach is to nurture our young talents holistically whereby they develop the knowledge and skills needed in the different domains.

- GRIT Culture
These pillars are embedded in our programs to develop their all-rounded development that will be beneficial for their studies and personal growth.
Established in 2013, our vision is to be the premier education provider focusing on early talent discovery and development in order to harness both gift and grit. We uphold to stand true to the hallmarks of high quality and integrity of the Singapore brand name and at the same time bringing our extremely successful enrichment programs to Hong Kong.
With our wealth of experience in the field and our extensive and expanding presence in Singapore, we are now taking a leap to Hong Kong by offering first-of-its-kind programs for high ability learners in the territory.
Our philosophy at Gifted and Talented Education is based on“3G”: Gift + Grit + Growth
At GATE, we recognize and value the gift in each child. We harness the gift from one domain to multiple domains, from academic (big data analysis) to life skills (leadership roles). Gifted Education is a specialized and effective education catered to high ability learners. Many developed countries have established various gifted education programs for more than half a century including Israel, the USA, Singapore, Australia and Canada. Celebrity examples include Mark Zuckerberg, Lady Gaga, Sergey Brin and Adam Reiss who have gone through the gifted programs and made tremendous success in their careers.
Grit is determination, resilience, tenacity, passion, and perseverance towards a long term goal. We believe the amount of “grit” a child has is the most critical factor to determine his/her long term achievements. At GATE, we create and reinforce a learning culture of grit from curriculum design, teaching and parenting style and peer motivation (as each person’s grit enhances the grit in others).
We adopt a growth mindset strategy as intelligence can be further developed. Researches have shown that individual IQ can be improved by more than 20% over the years with the right coaching. We nurture our children by improving their ability and mindset instead of worrying how smart they are. They work hard to learn more and grow smarter. A growth mindset thrives on challenges.
