GT Center Schools

By enrolling in a Jeffco Public Schools GT (Gifted and Talented) center via EnrollJeffco, all returning and newly qualified families are agreeing to GT center school expectations.

What is a Gifted Center?

The needs of advanced learners are mainly addressed at neighborhood schools. Jeffco offers an optional program, the gifted center, for highly academic students who are identified as gifted.

Gifted centers, in existence since 1984, are housed in regular school settings and provide full-time educational experiences. Instruction involves acceleration, enrichment and attention to affective needs, and is based on various formal and informal data to ensure the needs of students are met.

 A trained GT counselor provides social-emotional support to classrooms one day per week at GT center schools. Read more about the difference between neighborhood schools and GT centers.

Jeffco currently offers nine elementary, six middle school and two high school center programs.

The structure of first and second-grade enrollment may vary at each GT center depending on each school’s enrollment and staffing capacity at those grade levels. Some schools may need to combine primary grade levels, cluster small groups of students or adopt some other configuration to accommodate GT center students in these grades. No matter the configuration, the program ensures that the academic and affective needs of GT students will be met.
