Dear MITY Friends,
In 1967, a visionary group of educators opened the Twin Cities Institute for Talented Youth (TCITY) for academically gifted students from St. Paul and Minneapolis high schools.   Over the next 50 years, we expanded to include students from across the United States and around the world.   With the expansion of our student population, we changed our name to Minnesota Institute for Talented Youth (MITY).

Today, MITY serves over 700 students in grades 1 through 12.  Our goal remains the same:
to offer an educational experience in which talented students explore their passions and are challenged to grow on an academic, creative, and personal level, surrounded by a safe and supportive community of passionate teachers and staff.  

Even after 50 years, students, staff and alumni remain bonded by their experiences at the Institute.

MITY (TCITY) has remained committed to offering an exceptional learning opportunity to all talented and motivated youth, regardless of their financial situation.  This is not possible without the generous support from amazing donors like you, along with corporate and foundations grants, who understand the positive impact that MITY has on these young minds.

Every gift to the MITYgiving fund, not matter the size, will have a direct impact on a student.  Please donate and join 50 years of supporters in the effort to expand the potential for more of Minnesota’s talented Youth,

Thank you for your MITYsupport,
Robbie Seum, MITY Executive Director
