Hello P.A.L [Parents of Accelerated Learners] NYC,


Welcome to PALNYC,

If your child exhibits advanced abilities in reading, music, art, math or other areas, seems intensely curious or sensitive, appears bored or acts out in the general ed classroom, is already a bit too good at negotiating, or if you are simply looking for resources, programs and innovative tools to support your child’s learning needs, then you are in the right place.

Join PALNYC this 2018/2019 season to discover how you can support the cognitive, social and emotional development of your child. Explore the pre-K through 12th grade educational landscape in NYC, programs that cater to the talents and strengths of G&T learners, and learn ways you can support your child’s unique strengths, talents and interests through local and online resources.

PALNYC is proud to partner with School Choice International and School Search Solutions for The Michael Perelstein $25,000 Scholarship Fund’s Discover Your Passion™ Competition.  The deadline is September 30th, so apply now!

The Discover Your Passion™ Competition encourages parents, students, teachers and schools to identify and showcase exemplary creativity, intellectual pursuits and talent of school children. The competition brings to the foreground the full range of what talent can be – from the academically advanced “how does it work?” student to the child who loves animals and has the potential to harness that passion to be the next Temple Grandin or Jane Goodall. If your child is in 2nd to 12th grade in NYC, then he or she is eligible.

Looking for schools, resources or support for your child?  We’re constantly adding new events and resources available in the city and farther afield to help parents and educators support their children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. And we’ll be announcing more partnerships and programs to benefit your children, so subscribe to our blog and we’ll keep you updated.

Daunted by the elementary, middle school and high school options and not sure which pathway will best support YOUR child? PALNYC presents the ROADMAP to HIGH SCHOOL— the only resource in NYC that helps parents take a ‘30,000 foot view’ of the road ahead and re-focus their journey to provide the most relevant educational options based on their child’s specific needs.

We look forward to another great year together.
