BCGT is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization of parents and educators whose common purpose is to continually enhance the Extended Services program in Barrington District 220 by serving as a resource and advocate for gifted students, their families and faculty.


Creating a community for students and their families

We host several events during the school year, including Game Night, Science Night, Career Exploration nights and others. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer or get involved in our community.
