Creating Awesome Minds for Progress!”

Program Overview

Our Gifted and Talented Program serves students from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  Weekly enrichment activities are provided for grades K-2, which are designed to introduce and develop skills beyond the basic curriculum.  Students in grades 3-6 are served through a pull-out resource program with a scheduled period of 150-180 minutes per week.  Students in grades 7-12 may participate in the program through secondary content classes, accelerated Math, a variety of AP classes, and/or concurrent credit courses.
