An initiative to help young talents with high abilities
For more than 30 years, the SEK Education Group’s Star Program has helped young talents with high capacities from SEK schools -who are part of the 3% of the population with these great capacities for learning and intelligence- receive the special supports they need for their educational and social integration.
The Star Program is part of the pedagogical initiatives and attention to diversity that promotes educational and psychological care for children and young people with high capacities and family training. Over 800 students have passed through this program in these last three decades, aimed at enriching their personal development, while preventing dyssynchronies or imbalances that may arise due to the cognitive differences of these talented children.
Luz Pérez, director of the Star Program, has always valued the benefits of this initiative for these students, which she describes as “an innovative proposal that, from a scientific point of view, is very valuable since for some time, socially, this type of educational needs weren’t globally known”.
