MITY prioritizes the health and safety of its students and staff and has therefore moved its 2020-2021 YES program to an online format. We have also expanded to add exciting online classes for 5th - 7th grade students. Details of these programs can be found under “Online Programs.”
EYM: MITY will have one online session (June 14 – 25) and two in-person sessions (July 12 – 23 and July 26 – August 6). We are unable to host residential students in 2021 due to the pandemic. Applications are now being accepted.

About Minnesota Institute
for Talented Youth
MITY offers much more than rigorous curriculum – its educational philosophy is to develop students not only academically, but physically and socially as well. Students enjoy fun recreational activities that foster friendships, build teamwork and generate opportunities for peer support and leadership development. Students are free to embrace their true selves, take risks, and experience the true joy of being a part of the MITY family.
For over 50 years, MITY has attracted bright students in grades one through twelve from throughout the Twin Cities and around the world, inviting them to embrace their intellectual curiosity in a stimulating environment. Our mission is to offer an educational experience in which gifted and talented students explore their passions and are challenged to grow on an academic, creative, and personal level.
MITY offers unique STEM, Humanities, and Fine Arts courses in three exciting academic programs, each taught by master teachers. Students dig into new topics, stretch their thinking, develop non-cognitive skills, and meet a diverse group of people who share their love of learning. MITY’s safe, inclusive climate fosters a feeling of family among students and staff, empowering participants to be themselves and shine in new ways.
I invite you to read about each of our unique programs to see how your child can benefit from the opportunities that we provide. A MITY-fine experience awaits.
