WCPS Advanced Programs attract highly able, highly motivated and identified gifted students. Some programs are more competitive than others and placement in those programs is not guaranteed. Some programs are based at a student's "home" school and others require a student to travel to another location.
Washington County Public Schools offers a spectrum of special focus programs for advanced-level learners, aligning with Maryland's Continuum of Services in Gifted and Talented Education. These programs are an integral component of WCPS initiatives to provide challenging academic experiences for an increasingly diverse student population across the county.
