Academically Talented (AT)
TCAPS’ Academically Talented (AT) program provides a learning community where each student is surrounded by a peer group of academically gifted learners throughout the day. This environment is one of the key elements identified as being essential to a successful gifted education program. TCAPS’ AT program provides essential peer stimuli allowing children to learn and share their ideas as well as enhances their emotional growth.
Special programs for identified talented and gifted students are available for students in grades 4 through 12. In grades 4-5, students identified as talented and gifted are offered the opportunity to attend a magnet school located at Central Grade School. At the middle school level, Academically Talented (AT) classes are offered in the four core academic areas: math, science, social studies and language arts. Each middle school offers one class in each subject at each grade level for students in the Talented and Gifted Program. At the high school level, Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes are offered in almost all curricular areas, and many students may pursue honors level courses, at Northwestern Michigan College.
