LOWER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Qualified students have the opportunity to expand their educational experience by participating in the Journey Program.

JOURNEY PROGRAM

The Journey Program exists to encourage and provide academic enrichment through a series of nurturing and stimulating activities in an informal and relaxed setting. The program was developed to meet the needs of 2nd-5th grade students who demonstrate an extraordinarily high degree of intellectual, academic, creative and/or artistic abilities. During the screening process, students will be evaluated in four categories: 1. mental ability, 2. academic achievement, 3. creativity, and 4. motivation. To qualify for placement into the Journey Program, a student must meet the eligibility criteria in at least three of the four categories and must score at or above the 95 percentile on the Kauffman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT) Second Edition, a nationally-used intelligence survey test.
