GAP-Gifted and Accelerated Programs
FOCUS is Stafford County Public Schools’ gifted and accelerated program title.Focus at the high school is truly a resource program--students are not pulled out of their regular classes for enrichment or acceleration on a regular basis; however, the GAP(Gifted and Accelerated Programs) Coordinator is available to identified students, for one-on-one work with teachers to accelerate or enrich curriculum as needed, and he or she is also either the facilitator or the contact/liaison for several programs available for interested students including Destination Imagination, Independent Study, Virtual Virginia, Commonwealth Governor's School, and the International Bacculaureate diploma program. In addition, the GAP coordinator assists students applying to various summer programs including the Summer Residential Governor's School, Summer Regional Governor's School, and numerous other opportunities.
