The Gifted & Talented Program at CCSMS fosters in each student a desire for excellence, compassion for others, and a sense of individual responsibility to self, the school, the community and a changing society.

We will:

  • Challenge and stimulate the academically Gifted & Talented (GT) student
  • Assist in delivering a teaching approach that enriches and accelerates the learning of core content according to the state’s curriculum standards.
  • Identifying and placing all CCSMS academically GT students in grades 6-8 according to the mandated specifications of the Education Improvement Act of South Carolina (Regulation 43-220).
  • Providing each GT child opportunities for intellectual stimulation through group interaction with others of similar academic abilities and a curriculum of experiences and activities outside the limits of the regular classroom.
  • Empowering each gifted child to recognize and fully utilize his or her specific unique talents and to strive for excellence while contributing to self and others.
