Advanced Academic Programs


Vision & Mission

Miami-Dade County Public Schools' vision of gifted education is to provide access to excellence. Through the Department of Advanced Academic Programs, the mission is to nurture academically talented students through programs that provide for the maximum development of each student's academic talents as demonstrated by a need for differentiated services, successful classroom performance, and educational opportunities that are challenging, accelerated, enriched, and innovative.

Specifically, Department of Advanced Academic Programs strives to:

  • promote experiences that replace, supplement, or extend learning opportunities through differentiated pedagogy;
  • facilitate student access to appropriate learning opportunities in advanced programs especially for underrepresented groups;
  • increase student achievement through the acquisition of enhanced thinking and problem-solving skills;
  • promote acceleration and enrichment of able students through the use of investigative and shared inquiry skills; and
  • promote the individual pursuit of special interests and development of academic talents.
