PEGS Program Overview

  • The St. Louis Regional Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students (PEGS) offers curricular acceleration and enrichment opportunities for exceptionally gifted students in grades 1-12. This regional public school program was established to assist local school districts in providing for the unique needs of these exceptionally gifted students.  PEGS is a tier 3 support for highly gifted students with about 1% of gifted students qualifying for this level of learning intervention.

    Intellectually and academically exceptional students need a demanding and fast-paced curriculum. These students also benefit from regular interaction with intellectual peers. PEGS provides an appropriately challenging curriculum that enables these students to be creative producers, socially adjusted individuals and effective leaders.

    PEGS is located at Lindbergh’s Idea Center, Sperreng Middle School and Lindbergh High School. The application deadline for the 2025-26 school year is March 1, 2025.
