Elementary Gifted and Talented Program

At Connections Academy, the personalized approach to learning helps online gifted and talented elementary students grow—and thrive. Special gifted and talented programs, combined with a personalized learning plan, enable exceptional students to work above grade level and achieve their highest potential in the elementary gifted and talented program.

Enriched Learning

Our school enables high-ability students to benefit from an accelerated learning pace, specially trained teachers, and an enriched curriculum with choices for studying subjects in greater depth. They also enjoy opportunities to take part in special projects and develop higher-level thinking skills. Gifted and talented courses are available for elementary and middle school students in grades 3–8.

Personalized Options for Gifted and Talented Students

With Connections Academy, families of gifted and talented students gain access to extra educational options. Gifted elementary students may be enrolled in advanced courses either for all subjects offered or only in their areas of strength and interest. When appropriate, younger gifted students may be given the opportunity to work at a higher grade level. We also offer elementary gifted and talented programs for 'twice exceptional' students, who are gifted but have special educational needs.
