Our goal is to inspire CCHS Gifted and Talented students to channel their giftedness into learning. Students are encouraged to take the most rigorous courses we offer, including honors and Advanced Placement. Those whose gifts include athletics or the arts will find many options to help them pursue those talents and passions.
CCHS does not offer a specific Gifted and Talented course; you will find that most of the Gifted and Talented students tend to take honors and AP classes as taking advantage of rigorous courses is an important piece in the pursuit of college. The AP program offers students the flexibility to concentrate on areas of strength or interest. Some students take as many AP courses as they can, but others may choose to pursue the challenge in, say, math and/or science while taking College Prep level courses in English or social studies. Students who successfully pass AP exams may be awarded college credit, depending on where they choose to attend, and the AP courses offer good preparation for the realities of college academics.
I encourage you to look at what we have to offer in academics, athletics, arts, and extracurricular activities and to contact me with any questions.
