Since 1983, Talcott Mountain Academy has been a model school for teaching the gifted and talented. Located in a serene and inspiring setting high atop Talcott Mountain in Avon, CT, TMA is a unique on-site learning laboratory for intellectually excited students — where a child’s innate abilities of inquiry, discovery and curiosity are nurtured from an early age.
With TMA’s hands-on approach to learning, your child will enjoy a fully-integrated curriculum where language arts is integrated and balanced with science; mathematics is related to art; and music combines with technology to synthesize new sounds for young ears.
As a division of the Talcott Mountain Science Center, students at the Academy have full access to Science Center resources — including state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Students explore subjects such as genetics, meteorology, entomology and astronomy, with specialized Science Center staff as teachers and mentors.
Science Center programs also provide students with opportunities to engage in scientific and educational research and interact with Nobel Laureates, MacArthur Fellows and award-winning experts in their fields — including biomedical engineers, physicists, forensic scientists, astronauts and atmospheric chemists … to name but a few.
Talcott Mountain Academy faculty and staff take pride in our students’ accomplishments — and our students take pride in their own work. At TMA, we believe that each student has special talents and a combination of abilities that will allow them to succeed in whatever they choose to do in life. Talcott Mountain Academy provides students with a place to explore, nurture and grow their gifts.
