Academies


Grades 4-6 Academically Gifted Program Academies

All academies are designed to complement and extend the Cheshire Public Schools core curriculum.

Select academies are offered for each grade (4th-6th) in the following categories:

Fine Arts
Language Arts
Mathematics
Performing Arts
Research and Investigation
Science
Social Science

Participants are matched to their academies based upon strengths, interests, and information gathered from student, parents/guardians, and home schools.

Academies are scheduled on Mondays (Highland), Tuesdays (Chapman), Thursdays (Norton), and Fridays (Doolittle).

The academies occur during both morning and afternoon time periods.

In addition to meeting with the gifted education teacher during their semester-long academy sessions, students are encouraged to elaborate on and extend their work during class time and at home.
