DEPARTMENT OF GIFTED AND ADVANCED PROGRAMS
Fauquier County Public Schools' gifted/Gateways program provides educational opportunities designed to meet the needs, abilities, and interests of our highest ability students. Professional staff using multiple criteria identify students in each school and at each grade level. Students are offered challenging programs which reflect a continuum of skills and concepts allowing students to build upon prior knowledge. Differentiated curricula and teaching strategies which stress critical thinking skills, creativity, and problem-solving are integrated into the content of the gifted offerings.
MVGS applications are now available through the cousseling departments at each high school or at the link on this page.
Current 9th graders looking for a rigorous and unique program are encouraged to apply. Accepted students will need to have completed Algebra II (preferably Honors) before beginning MVGS in the fall of 2121.
There will be a virtual informational meeting in late January and early February and the link will be on this page.
