Ohio Association for Gifted Children (OAGC) advances understanding of the needs of the gifted, promotes establishment of programs and services for gifted students, and encourages the exchange of information on the national, state and local levels.

National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) is an organization of parents, teachers, educators, other professionals, and community leaders who unite to address the unique needs of children and youth with demonstrated gifts and talents as well as those children who may be able to develop their talent potential with appropriate educational experiences.

Northwestern University's Midwestern Academic Talent Search (NUMATS)
is a program of the Center for Talent Development (CTD) that offers above-grade-level testing for high-performing students in grades 3 through 9. This Talent Search approach is an extremely well-researched and respected program model in gifted education.

Cleveland Clinic Internships
The Cleveland Clinic Office of Civic Education Initiatives' Summer Internship Program was designed to increase high school students' interest and literacy in science by expanding their learning experiences beyond the classroom. The program's intensive, nine-week, paid internships provide top students throughout Northeast Ohio with the opportunity to work and learn alongside nationally renowned healthcare professionals in a variety of fields. At the end of the program, students present scientific research or creative projects that they have produced over the nine weeks.
