Talented & Gifted education
At Louisa County Public Schools, we are committed to the special needs of all gifted children by providing learning experiences that affirm and develop their potential. The Louisa County Public School Division embraces the definition of giftedness expressed by the U.S. Department of Education (1993), which states:
Children and youth with outstanding talent perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth exhibit high capability in intellectual, creative, and/or artistic areas, possess an unusual leadership capacity, or excel in specific academic fields. They require services or activities not ordinarily provided by schools. Outstanding talents are present in children and youth from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.
