Gifted & Talented Program: Elementary School

Whether enrolled full-time or part-time, gifted and talented students at International Connections Academy (iNaCA) find the specialized instruction and support they need to work above their grade level, grow, and thrive.

Advancing in Core Subjects

Designed specifically for gifted learners in grades 3–5, our advanced courses* offer increased interaction with teachers and peers, as well as special projects, activities, and investigations that promote higher-level thinking skills. These courses include:

  • Language Arts
  • Literature
  • Math
  • Science

“Twice-exceptional” full-time students who may be gifted in one subject but need special help in another, our gifted and talented team can create customized programs to address both strengths and challenges.

Identifying Gifted Students

For full-time iNaCA students, parents or a teacher may nominate a student for enrollment in iNaCA’s gifted or talented program. In evaluating nominations to the program, iNaCA considers:

  • Aptitude and achievement test scores
  • Grades or previous academic performance
  • An individual portfolio of previous work
  • A prior school’s assessment

For part-time students enrolling in one of our individual gifted and talented courses, parents should contact an enrollment advisor to determine the appropriate course level.

* Please note that enrollment for the Gifted and Talented Language Arts courses will close on November 1, 2016.
