Ensure Creativity Thrives!

Support Innovation, Ingenuity, Imagination, and Invention!


Founded in 1983, the Center for Gifted/Midwest Torrance Center for Creativity provides thousands of children each year with unique, hands-on learning opportunities employing inventive modes of delivery and participation.


Our faculty comprises outstanding professionals - experts in their respective fields - who communicate effectively with children and reflect a genuine sensitivity and commitment to teaching and learning. Differentiation and critical thinking are the cornerstones of all our programs.
