Center for Bright Kids - Institute for Educational Advancement

Center for Bright Kids

The Center for Bright Kids has been in operation for 40 years, with a focus on academic talent development and above-level testing/assessment, accelerated weekend and day programs, an international travel program, and accelerated residential summer programs at the University of Colorado Boulder. CBK holds a strong national reputation for participation in discussions and research about gifted and talented students, and for programs that offer both academic rigor and rich socioemotional growth and connection no matter where our kids come from. CBK also now operates a secondary progressive school in the Denver metro area called Vector Progressive School. Vector is a small school environment for gifted and talented kids looking for people who truly “get” them, and emphasizes a full secondary learning trajectory from ages 11-18 with a focus in social justice pedagogy.
