Emerson Accelerated Pathway for Gifted and High Achieving Students

What’s new at Emerson! 

 

The EMERSON ACCELERATED PATHWAY (EAP) is for Gifted and High Achieving Students. This program is founded on the values and ideals of our charter document and is aligned with the state standards for GATE programs. EAP is designed to meet the needs for GATE and High Achieving students in the following areas: 

* Accelerated math 

* Socio-behavioral needs 

* Identification of high achieving students as gifted 

* Preparation for advanced coursework in high school 

* Depth of knowledge and Cognitive Complex 

 

Proof of residential status or acceptance through the charter lottery process is REQUIRED before students can be considered for the EAP Program. Applications can only be picked up in the Student Services Office and only after it has been determined that one of these two requirements has been met. Applications for the EAP may be picked up at the same time as the enrollment paperwork.

After the enrollment requirements have been satisfied, students who have been state identified as Gifted or Highly Gifted will automatically be accepted into the EAP. If your child is not identified Gifted there are three alternative qualifiers for EAP: 

* Consecutive "Exceeds" scores in both Math and ELA on the SBAC

* A score in excess of 85% on a recognized nationally normed achievement test. 

* Teacher recommendation showing that the student meets all FOUR critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Student must also demonstrate the ability (or strong potential) to perform two years above grade level in academic subjects. (Page 2 and 3 of Application)
