Gifted Pre-Kindergarten Academy Launching This Fall

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (June 1, 2017) The Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) believes you’re never too young to start learning. That’s why we’re launching the Gifted Pre-Kindergarten Academy (GPA) for 4 year olds next fall.

There is still room for more tiny geniuses in the GPA, so we have added the following admission testing dates:

  • Monday, June 12
  • Tuesday, June 20
  • Tuesday, June 27

Interested families with children who will be four years old by September 1 can register for testing by signing up on our interest list at /communityed/ go to the pink Gifted Pre-K Academy button.  

For media interested in covering the program, we can facilitate interviews with a preschooler who has already qualified for the program and is enrolled for fall. A parent is also available for interviews.

The GPA is designed to meet the unique learning needs of gifted preschoolers through hands-on, project-based, and accelerated learning. Students will get early instruction in art, music and science, all taught by a certified teacher with specialized training in education for gifted children. Redfield Elementary will be home to the GPA. Families have several upcoming opportunities to visit Redfield to learn more about the program.

Gifted program tour date:

  • Wednesday, June 7 (5:30-6:30 PM)
  • Tuesday, July 11, 2017 (5:30-6:30 pm)

GPA parent informational meeting:

  • Tuesday, August 1, 2017 (5:30-7:00 pm)

Redfield Elementary is located at 9181 E. Redfield Rd. Scottsdale, AZ 85260. Families can sign up for the tours at gifted.susd.org. Media, please contact Erin Helm at 480-389-9033 to arrange an interview with the enrolled child and parent or to attend one of the gifted tours.
