Welcome to GT at Excel Academy!

At Excel Academy, we're pleased to offer weekly enrichment to students in grades 3-8. Students who are GT learn about a variety of topics in these sessions that include self and social skills lessons, cognitive exercises, and STEAM activities. Students who are advanced in reading may also participate in a book club and/or receive other support from GT teachers.

On our site you will find all sorts of resources for our students, parents, and community.

Please look through the tabs and browse our page. Enjoy your stay!

Greetings! In November, students have been learning about stress and anxiety management in their affective groups. We have practiced deep breathing, learned about the physiological effects of stress, and discussed a variety of strategies for coping with stress.
