Vision, Mission & Philosophy
We will provide challenging and engaging learning all day, every day, for each gifted learner to meet his/her potential.
The mission of the College Community Gifted and Talented program is to recognize the academic and affective strengths and needs of all gifted learners, actively supporting their growth.
Gifted and Talented students are a diverse group with a range of strengths and needs. It is our responsibility to provide intellectual challenge and academic support for this distinct group.
Talented and gifted programming is integrated within the educational system through collaborative efforts among administrators, GT teachers, classroom teachers, support staff, parents, and community.
A comprehensive staff development program and a diversity of resources must be provided for all school staff involved in the education of gifted learners.
Gifted learners develop skills and talents, self-direction, and life-long learning through exploration of their passions and interests.
Talented and Gifted children have unique social and emotional needs that will be addressed through the collaborative efforts of school and parents.
Identifying the needs of gifted learners is an ongoing process. Student progress should be monitored over time, and educational goals adjusted, as appropriate, through the student’s Personal Education Plan.
The Gifted and Talented Program provides a range of program options and a continuum of services.
Advocacy protocols provide opportunities for ongoing identification of student needs for services provided in the Gifted and Talented Program.
