Gifted Academy Testing Feb. 9


​​​​​​​​​​​​Click here to register for the Feb. 9 Gifted Academy eligibility​ test​.

The Gifted Academy is one of many specialized programs in the Rockford Public Schools. We recognize that gifted students, like other groups in the general school population, possess unique potential and needs which can only be addressed through modification of the regular curriculum. ​​​

Rockford students may qualify for the Gifted Academy in kindergarten, and eligibility tests are administered every year for new applicants in subsequent grade levels.​

Learn more about the Gifted Academy at the Gifted and CAPA Academies Open House at 10 a.m. on Nov. 3 at Auburn High School​​​.​
