About the Academy

  • The Gifted and Talented Academy at the middle school level provides a challenging learning environment that encourages students to interact with their peers academically, creatively, aesthetically, and socially at a higher level.

    In addition to lessons that involve critical thinking, teamwork, and advanced learning, students have the opportunity to take the following high school courses:  English I, Math I, Spanish I, and World History. Providing these courses to middle schoolers prepares them for a more rigorous course of study at the high school level.  Further, the schoolwide enrichment model gives all students an opportunity to explore areas of interest and be involved in special activities.

    This program creates a pathway for students to participate in the Collegiate Prep Academy at Forestview High School.

    Students from outside the Cramerton attendance area who will be in the sixth grade for the 2024-2025 school year may apply for this program. A lottery process will be used to determine the 25 sixth grade students who will attend (from outside the Cramerton attendance area). In addition, there will be 40 seats available for students currently enrolled in fifth grade at the Gifted and Talented Academy at Pleasant Ridge Elementary.
