Advanced Academics Program
Learn more about Groveton's AAP Program
Fairfax County Public Schools offers advanced academic services for all students in grades K-12. Learning opportunities are designed to meet the unique learning profile of each advanced learner through a continuum of services designed to focus and engage the student in challenging learning experiences that develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies (POS). Classroom teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) collaborate to deliver the various levels of service. For further information see the FCPS Advanced Academics website at: http://www.fcps.edu/is/aap/index.shtml
As the Advanced Academics Resource Teachers (AART), we coordinate the screening and identification of students for advanced academic services, collaborate with classroom teachers to provide differentiated instruction and provide direct school-based services for identified students. We provide services to the children at Groveton Elementary School through model lessons in Critical and Creative Thinking and working with the classroom teachers to extend and enrich the Program of Studies (POS).
