About CBK

Welcome to the Center for Bright Kids! This is our 35th year serving our seven-state region with the academic talent search and identifying kids across the country and around the world who are looking for a space in the world to call "home". We believe we can offer "a bright spot for bright kids" who often have difficulty finding a place of challenge, excitement, and community. No matter what time of year kids are interested in becoming involved in this kind of environment, we have programs available.

The CBK logo shapes our philosophy that students in our programs operate as a microcosm of society -- contributing to the good of the whole as thoughtful, responsible individuals who strive to learn, excel, create, and imagine in challenging and playful ways, while at the same time, thinking together in meaningful relationships and active environments.

Join the more than 8,000 kids who participate in CBK programs each year. Feel free to give us a call at 303-428-2634 or drop us an e-mail at cbk@centerforbrightkids.org for more information about us and the ways we support the academic, social, and emotional growth of bright youth.


We look forward to your participation!
