    The service offered to gifted students at the middle school level in Loudoun County is called Spectrum. Most students who participate in the Spectrum program at the middle school level were identified in the 3rd grade, participated in the FUTURA program during 4th and 5th grade, and moved on to the Spectrum program in middle school. Those students who move into our school district during the middle school years are identified by a multi-faceted process involving standardized test scores, teacher evaluations, and student portfolios.


    We will not be accepting new referrals for gifted evaluations at this time. An update will be provided after the first quarter regarding the acceptance of new referrals. Please contact us if you have any questions or need further information.


    The LCPS Gifted Education Office is moving the 2020-2021 gifted eligibility process to the fall of 2021. This decision was made to ensure that the process is safe and equitable for all LCPS families. Curricular enrichment opportunities designed to develop talent will be offered for students during the first marking period. Screening and identification will begin in November. Virtual information sessions will be held in the fall to share information with LCPS families. At that time, families can follow up with their child’s gifted resource teacher with questions.
