The School of the Gifted Young (SGY) at the University of Science and Technology of China has been educating China’s brightest youths for over 30 years. The school offers a unique opportunity for those who are ready for higher education, but are too young to enter a normal university. A big draw for students and parents alike is SGY’s unique teaching model. Since it was founded, SGY has crafted a high-requirement curriculum and flexible educational system that sets it apart from other academic institutions. This forward-thinking institution keeps class sizes small, has a rigorous admittance process, and provides a distinctive curriculum.
