Stevenson-Carson Highly Capable Program

The Stevenson-Carson School District is dedicated to providing a specialized program, customized to meet the unique and perse academic, social, and emotional needs of our highly-capable population. The Stevenson-Carson Highly Capable Program:

  • advocates for the needs of exceptional children within the classroom
  • provides several options from which the student and family may choose, and
  • serves as a resource for families, educators, and the community

For highly capable students, access to accelerated learning and enhanced instruction is access to a basic education. Therefore, we offer custom, flexible programs for highly capable students in grades three through eight, as well as honors and advanced placement classes at the secondary level. At this time, three main options have been used to provide the greatest educational opportunities to our highly capable population: Pull-out, support and extension of classroom content, and curriculum that is accelerated and/or compacted.
