Young Scholars: A Model for Success

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) developed the Young Scholars initiative to increase the proportion of historically underrepresented students in its K-8 gifted programs. In this model, school administrators, teachers, and GT resource teachers work together to nurture Young Scholars and prepare them for more challenging and rigorous courses.

After eight successful years implementing the Young Scholars model, FCPS and CaseNEX partner to offer this extensive multimedia resource center and an online graduate level course comprised of four modules that enable schools to adapt the Young Scholars model to meet the needs of traditionally underrepresented populations in their own district.
