Advanced Academics Program (AAP)

In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), gifted services are available to students who exhibit exceptional performance capability in academic, intellectual, and creative endeavors through Advanced Academic Programs (AAP). When a student is screened for AAP, the school division considers a student’s performance in the four core academic subject areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. FCPS also considers the diverse characteristics and behaviors associated with giftedness determined by multiple comprehensive assessments.

If interested in applying, please take note of the following dates:

  • Students new to FCPS as of January 1, 2021: The Fall Screening deadline for Level IV Referrals is October 7, 2021.
