Gifted Academy

Academic achievement gaps by ethnicity and socioeconomic classes remain large and persistent in our nation and the disparities have been steady for many decades. The St. Augustine Academy for Gifted Boys will identify boys with talent in mathematics, science, art, and music beginning in the fifth grade and involve them in after-school, Saturday, and summer enrichment classes and programs for a 3-year period, until the students enter high school.

Welcoming boys who wish to rise to the challenge of a fast-paced, academic focused curriculum that prepares them for success in high school and beyond.

The program will begin with a Summer Intensive session on the historic St. Augustine High School campus for Boys entering Grades 4 - 7

2019 Summer Intensive July 1-12
