Welcome to Advanced Academics

  • Advanced Academic Services of Waco ISD is dedicated to providing the most appropriate educational services for gifted and advanced students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The gifted and advanced students are engaged and challenged at every level. Elementary GT students receive services through differentiated instruction in the GT cluster classrooms in addition to GT Enrichment Pullout. Gifted and talented identified kindergarten students begin receiving services in March. Secondary GT and advanced students receive differentiated instruction through the ATLAS Academy, Pre-Adv/AP and Dual Credit classrooms.


    Our purpose is to promote rigor, depth, complexity and challenge for the District's advanced and gifted learners, with the goal of providing the opportunity to produce advanced products and performances.
