Comprehensive Gifted Program (CGP) Information

  • The Comprehensive Gifted Program (CGP) is designed to provide highly gifted, elementary and middle school students, who possess advanced intellectual, academic, talent or creative capabilities with unique educational opportunities. The CGP program is founded on thematic interdisciplinary studies, academic rigor, critical and creative thinking. It is the goal of the CGP to provide a comprehensive program that is responsive to the unique academic, creative, social and emotional needs of the precocious gifted child.

    Highly gifted students eligible to apply for CGP include submission of:

    • Cognitive abilities as indicated by one of the three below:
      1. Score in the 97th percentile or higher in two or more areas (verbal, quantitative or non-verbal) and a 90th percentile or higher in the third area on a state-approved test such as the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT)
      2. A combined score of the three areas of 284 or higher
      3. Demonstrate a Full-Scale IQ of 135 or higher on an Intelligence Test such as: Weschler Intelligence Scale V (WISC-V) or the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test given by a licensed psychologist or on two or more areas (verbal, quantitative or non-verbal)
