ACE Program Information

New Kent County Public Schools offers a continuum of differentiated instructional programs and services designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of gifted learners from kindergarten through twelfth grade which allow students to develop more fully and to appreciate their abilities and talents.

The goals of the ACE department are:

  • To identify through multiple criteria those children in K-12 who, by virtue of outstanding abilities, are capable of superior performance.
  • To find and promote ways to honor students' strengths, talents, interests, learning styles, creativity, and affect needs.
  • To provide differentiated programs that will enable gifted students to develop to their fullest potential.
  • To provide for the selection of qualified teachers and to provide continuous staff development in gifted education.
  • To promote an understanding of the gifted program by developing and maintaining a working relationship with parents and community members.
