Academically Accelerated Programs
The Gifted Program provides a unique educational opportunity for students identified as academically gifted. Classes provide a high degree of complexity and extend beyond the prescribed curriculum offered in the regular program. Courses are taught by teachers certified in gifted education and have reduced class size so that teachers can differentiate instruction and meet each student’s individual educational needs.

During the two year participation in the program, the student will be evaluated to determine eligibility for gifted education according to state criteria.
