We currently offer the Advanced Learners Program at TXVA for any 3-8 student who was identified as gifted at a previous school district or looking for enrichment opportunities here with us.

Learning circles meet periodically for students, usually on Thursdays at 2pm CST. We also have learning coach sessions from time to time.

If you are interested in ALP, please kmail Teresa Heims or email at theims@k12.com.
