Gifted & Talented Services

Our gifted and talented services are designed to match the unique needs, abilities, and interests of Fayette County students. From primary through high school, students are encouraged to maximize their abilities through a wide range of services that offer appropriate learning opportunities to nurture their individual gifts and talents.

The Fayette County Board of Education specifically allocates gifted resource teachers and Gifted & Talented Accelerated Program (GTAP) teachers to support schools in providing appropriate services for over 8,000 gifted students in FCPS. All schools offer these services, and we have specific districtwide gifted programs -- SCAPA at Bluegrass (grades 4-8); the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCAPA) at Lafayette High School; the Liberal Arts Academy at Henry Clay High School; and the Math, Science, & Technology Center (MSTC) at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School -- organized to meet students' unique abilities and interests.
