Dr. William Fitzgerald, President of St. Joseph High School, recently attended The Confratute Conference at the NEAG Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. Confratute converges prominent leaders in the field for a week of interaction and consultation with teachers, administrators and parents eager to learn about exceptionally-able youngsters: Who they are, how they learn differently from other children, and what parents and teachers can do to help them develop their creative abilities and talents.

The conference attracted over 600 educators from 40 states and twelve countries.
