Welcome to GTI!

The GTI Summer Institute is managed through ISD 191 Community Education. A dedicated staff is comprised of teachers and professionals from many fields, who will motivate, challenge, and inspire your child.  
We are committed to providing individualized instruction and appropriate learning communities.
