Self Nomination for Secondary Students 2018/19 
(Additional Nomination)

The mission of The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) is to secure appropriate learning and development opportunities for gifted students, aged 10 to 18. Please visit the HKAGE’s website at for information of the learning opportunities we offer.

HKAGE has developed a new student nomination scheme which has been implemented starting school year 2018/19. The major new element in the new nomination scheme is that gifted students interested in being members of HKAGE are required to apply and pass the HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening (Online Screening Programmes) before they can submit their nomination to be student members of HKAGE. Moreover, admitted student members are required to meet a set of programme completion requirements to sustain their full membership.

Attention please! HKAGE has arranged an additional round of nomination to be completed within school year 2018/19. If parents have missed the previous nomination in May 2018, this is another opportunity for parents to submit applications for their children.  From school year 2019/20 onwards, one nomination will be arranged to be completed within a school year annually.
