Advanced Academics Programs

Fairfax County Public Schools offers a continuum of advanced academic services for students K-12 that builds upon students' individual strengths and skills and maximizes the academic potential for all learners.

Our Great Falls Advanced Academic resource teacher (AART), Mrs. Gingrich, collaborates with the school staff to determine the appropriate level of advanced academic services. Parents may refer their child for advanced academic services or get additional information on the screening process or advanced academic opportunities at Great Falls by contacting Mrs. Gingrich at [email protected]. Ongoing observation and assessment ensure that student needs are being met.
