ATP

Academic Talent Program (ATP)

Academic Talent Program (ATP)

The Academic Talent Program (ATP) is a magnet class program for students in grades 4 through middle school who are identified as highly gifted using local measurements. The ATP offers students the opportunity to work in a homogeneous setting where their unique talents and abilities are challenged to the fullest extent. The curriculum is fast paced, complex and individualized. ATP is not for all students who are gifted and/or academically strong. It is not a gateway to Advanced Placement courses or top-ranked colleges. To find out more information about what ATP is and what it is not, click on the links to below to view the past year's presentation slides. 

 

The selection of students for the ATP is based on the CogAT scores within San Ramon Valley Unified School District local norms (a comparison of students within our district). To be initially considered for ATP selection, students must score at least a 97 composite score on the locally normed CogAT taken at SRVUSD in grades 2 or 3. These scores are not the same as the nationally normed scores that are posted on Campus Portal. Local scores can be obtained by contacting the Assessment Office at ECAssessmentMainLine@srvusd.net or Cathy McSweeney at cmcsweeney@srvusd.net.

 

Parents of students who have qualifying scores will be notified by a letter. The ATP selection panel also reviews students' other measures, such as classroom work samples and input from the school to select students who demonstrate the ability and need to work at a highly challenging and fast-paced instructional environment. Based on these measures, the top 90 students will be accepted and placed in the elementary school program. ATP classes are currently offered at Montair and Bella Vista Elementary Schools and at Diablo Vista, Gale Ranch, Windemere Ranch, and Los Cerros Middle Schools.
