This study aimed to examine the relationships between family and school connectedness on students’ creative and critical thinking self-efficacy. Academically talented students (n=1,424) from 4th-6th grade in Hong Kong completed a questionnaire. Results suggest that both family and school connectedness are positively associated with creative and critical thinking self-efficacy. Although school connectedness accounts for additional variance in creative and critical thinking self-efficacy after controlling for family connectedness, family and school connectedness only account for 18% of the variance in creative and critical thinking self-efficacy. Implications to researchers and educators will be discussed. Copyright © 2017 22nd Biennial World Gifted Conference.
