SAGE (Gifted Program) for High School 9-12
HIGH SCHOOL SAGE (GIFTED EDUCATION) - Grades 9-12
The goal of the Students in Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) program in high school is to provide personalized services for students to allow each student to maximize his or her capabilities. Each high school has a Gifted Resource Specialist (GRS) that serves as an adviser to the gifted students in grades 9-12. In this capacity, the GRS is able to help students develop a personalized profile plan for attaining their college and career goals and develop an individualized school program to meet these needs. The GRS has specialized gifted certification which can further enhance what this population of students require.
The Gifted Resource Specialist works with the student’s counselor to develop a four-year high school plan and choose appropriate courses. To facilitate the child’s best opportunities the GRS will work with the students and the parents in recommending extra curricular activities, summer programs, available scholarships, competitions, and will assist in facilitating internships and mentor programs.
