About eStudies

eStudies offers an innovative take on distance learning, pairing the flexibility of digital platforms with a gifted community and the attentive feedback possible in a small classroom. It relies on synchronous and asynchronous instruction, combining real-time interaction and discussion with message boards and weekly assignments. Students have the chance to take on advanced material with their peers from around the globe, providing the kind of deep, meaningful challenge that gifted students need.
