How to become a member?
- The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) endeavours to secure appropriate learning and development opportunities for gifted students aged 10 to 18 currently studying in a local school.
- HKAGE admits student members of appropriate ages mainly through the “School Nomination” and “Self- Nomination” schemes every school year. Gifted students interested in being members of HKAGE are required to pass “Stage 1: HKAGE Screening Programme” before they can submit their nomination profiles in “Stage 2: Submit Student Personal Profile” for further screening.
- Starting from the 2022/23 school year, the “Principal’s Nomination” is added to enhance the current “School Nomination” for students who are gifted in leadership. Each secondary school can nominate one potential student of Secondary 2 to Secondary 4 to the HKAGE. These nominated students are exempt from the Stage 1 screening and will be invited to submit their personal profiles for assessment as required in Stage 2.
