About

Our mission is to ensure that the academic, social, and emotional needs of all children having special gifts and talents are met.  It is our belief that it is the basic right of every child to experience the joy of learning each day.

The Maryland Coalition for Gifted And Talented Education (MCGATE) is a professional organization made up of parents, professionals, students, educators and others who share an interest in gifted education.   We focus on advocacy, education, promoting public awareness and policy, and supporting research-based educational practices that may contribute to the successful education of gifted, talented and highly able students in Pre-K through grade 12, including those students who may be identified as gifted with special learning needs.

MCGATE is a Maryland state affiliate of the National Association for Gifted Children

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.  Contributions may be tax deductible.
