Fall 2016: Applying to Academic Centers and Intl Gifted Program
As a quick review, Academic Centers are for 7-8th grade (apply in 6th grade.) Entry into an AC guarantees you a high school spot in that school (and you can still apply to other schools for high school if you wish.) Students can earn up to 8 HS credits while in an AC.
International Gifted Programs are for grades 6-8 (apply in 5th grade.) The program includes intensive study of English, French, social studies, laboratory science, mathematics, technology, arts, physical education, library science, and advanced research. The International Gifted Program is designed to allow intellectually able students to be schooled in their least restrictive environment and to mature at an accelerated pace. Lincoln Elem has the only program right now.
Admission for ACs is based on 5th grade test scores and grades + an admission test taken during 6th grade.
